Dandeshwar Temple is situated upstream1.9km from the Group of Jageshwar Temple Complex. Word Dandeshwar is formed by of two words, ‘Dand’ means Staff and ‘Eshwar’ means The God. It means the God Lord Shiv himself resides in the temple with a staff and keep a guard over this region. The temple is not visited much as compared to Jageshwar Dham. Dandeshwar Temple is one of the biggest and tallest temples of the Kumayun region probably built in between 9th and 10th century AD by the Katyuri rulers. As written on information rock board outside the temple, the temple complex is consisting of a cluster of 14 subsidiary shrines. The temple is facing east direction and dedicated to Lord Shiv with highly pronounced Sukanasa which crowns a small portico on the plan. The Santum is square devoid of any Ratha projection while the Shikara (spire) of the temple is different with other Nagar style temples of the region. The most popular bronze image of Pona Raja is now shifted from this temple to the Archaeological Museum Jageshwar for public view. The temple is situated amidst the serene and picturesque surroundings of the Jageshwar valley. The lush green forests of Deodar trees, tranquil atmosphere, and the view of the Himalayan peaks in the distance add to the spiritual ambiance of the place. A small river flows across the Temple complex. One can see the place within 10-15 minutes including some picture clicks. One can sit there and enjoy the nature.

Watch out for the priest here, he tries to spread extremist right wing views of Hindutva and hate, not spiritual Hinduism which would one would sadly expect is his job here. Admire the heritage structures, offer silent worship to the deity if you desire and leave. The temple appears to have been taken over by some arm of some local extremist right wing outfit. Very sad

It is a good temple, one among the group of 124 for temples in Jageshwar. It is on the way towards Jageshwar Dham Jyotirlinga temple.

Dandeshwar is supposedly the tallest in the Uttarakhand Region and is around 1 km before the Jageshwar Dham. There were hardly any visitors and is a road touch temple. The priest told us that the lord Shiva is worshipped in a Shayan mudra and there is no lingam or idol inside, but a rock like structure.

To the right on the approach road to Jageshwar one comes across this complex of Shiva Temples. We decided to visit this complex on the next morning when we were leaving Jageshwar.

This cluster of temples, dedicated to Lord Shiva was possibly built between the 9th and 10th centuries by the Katyuri rulers. It was early in the morning when we came to this place - it was pretty chilly. Silence prevailed everywhere. An immense sense of peace. An unforgettable feeling.
