Golu devta is the principal local deity in the areas around Almora and there are several temples dedicated to the deity. It is believed widely that if you pray to this deity about your deep rooted wish with a clear conscience and tie a bell at the temple it would be granted. Whether you have a wish or not you can make a quick visit to this temple if you are in and around Almora.

I have been to this temple many times as a child during my hometown visit in my summer breaks. This temple have a different aura and infinite numbers of bells and letters gives you goosebumps to see the belief of people. The only challenge is the monkeys who are around the temple. You need to be mindful about any things in your hand.

Temple near Almora, with a different way to pray and ask for wish to devi. People write there wish on a paper and some even on a government registered note and tie somewhere in the temple. Even we got our one of the wish fulfilled. Once fulfilled you need to visit again and unlock the tie again. Nice temple to be. Thousands of bells around the temple, some even the size of an adult person.

It's a beautiful temple near Almora, much revered by the people here. Golu Devta is the god of justice. Chitai temple is dedicated to him only. People from all over the country visit this temple,The legend goes that you write a letter to the Lord, expressing your desires, and tie it here with red thread. The Lord listens and grants your wish. As a token of thanks, you return and tie a brass bell at the temple. It has thousands of bells of all sizes, tiny to huge ones weighing over a hundred kilos. There are many temples of Golu Devta- across whole Uttarakhand but this one is main.

Hello Travellers.

The famous Temple of Chitai, Almora is actually known as Golu Devta Chitai temple, dedicated to Golu Devta or Goljyu Devta an Avtar (incarnation) of Lord Shiva in the form of Gaur Bhairav. It is one of he most and most sacred temple in the region. It is reputed to make every wish come true, provided the worshipper ask for it with a clear conscience. Devotees visit the temple in large numbers to offer bells and sacrifice animals after their wishes get fulfilled. The temple is surrounded by thick forests of the chir Pines and deodars. One can see a huge number of bells hanging in the temple premises. The walls of the temple are covered with stamp papers, which are basically the petitions of the devotees who got no justice at the court. Seeing the temple and offering prayers, one feels ecstatic and blessed.
The temple is situated at 9kms from the main city Almora.

This is an unique temple and visitors and devotees have to put up their requests pertaining to their wishes in writing like petitions; and after their fulfilment offer bells in temple. There are countless petitions and innumerable bells hanging around. Amazing indeed.

This is a beautiful temple wrt the concept where people write their prayers and wishes on a paper (some even on stamp paper) and tie them in the temple and tie bells when the wish come true! This was a very unique temple and i was mesmerised by seeing countless number of papers n bells in the temple! Golu devta is considered the god of justice! Am glad we could visit the temple and give our written wishes to him.Hoping to visit again and tie bells! One must visit the temple if you are in Almora.
