Places to Visit in Jageshwar

Mahamrityunjaya Temple:

Shiva is believed to be the savior and redeemer of all his devotees, even delivering them from death, or as in Hindu mythology, the ruler of the underworld, Yamraj, who collects the souls of the deceased from the terrestrial realm.

Jageshwar Mahadev Temple:

This temple is by far the most visited temple in the whole complex, dedicated to the incarnation of Shiva in the form of a child. The story goes as Shiva being an attractive alpha male to all the women folk of the village, where he used to meditate.

Archaeological Museum:

The Archaeological Museum, maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India, houses yet another exquisite collection of the anciently carved idols and old world representations of the deities.

Dandeshwar Temple:

An epitome of Nagar style architecture, the Dandeshwar Temple is as tall as you can crane your neck, quite literally. It is believed to house the shrine of Lord Shiva as the staff bearer, hence the name Dandeshwar, or the bearer of the 'dand', the staff.

Camping:

Camping is another good way to spend time with your family and friends to spend some quality time in the lap of nature. Being situated amidst the dense deodar trees, Jageshwar is an ideal place to camp and enjoy the beauty of nature.
