- Considered as one of the most sacred temple in this part of Uttarakhand, the temple of Goddess Naina Devi or Shakti Peeth is situated at the northern edge of the Naini lake. It is believed that angered by the death of his wife Lord Mahadev took her body and started dancing vigorously (Tandav Dance) which created havoc around the whole world and then Lord Vishnu cut the body into various pieces and one of these pieces out of the 51 pieces fell at this sacred place. There are about 51 such places where the temples have been built and these are known as Shakti Peeths. It is just Half a km away from the Mall. Nainital also derived its name from the temple aand so is the case with the name of lake. The passage to the temple is very crowded because hundreds of hawkers have put up their shops selling a variety of fancy items. Besides many eatery shops also flourish here and presence of the temple attracts the tourists. Another plus point of temple is that it offers fantastic view of the Lake. The temple is maintained well and many other temples of Hindu gods are also situated here.Written 27 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- During our stay in Nainital we also visited Mukteshwar Temple, popularly known as Muktsar Dham. This sacred temple believed to be established about 350 years, at an altitude of nearly 7000 feet or about 2300 meters is about 50 km away from Nainital bus stand. The main deity Mahadeva's Shivling, is made of white marble and is surrounded by the idols of other sacred deities, such as Hanuman, Ganesha, goddess Parvati and others. There are about 100 up hill steep steps from the entrance to the temple and. when we went there, it took us about 45 minutes to climb these steps because of a large number of people forming que on these steps. The temple is believed to bless the women with progeny and hence it is very popular among young couple or even childless couples. The temple is clean and well maintained. Besides the temple, this place is also frequently visited by the tourists place as it offers fantastic view of sunrise and sunset as well the lush green mountains and is not as crowded as Nainital. There are plenty of good hotels around the temple and is popular among nature loving tourists who prefer peaceful stay..Written 29 June 2023

- Visited in June’22 by road as part of local tour. As the name suggest, we were told that the place offers view of snow clad peaks. However, no snow view instead it offered panoramic views of surrounding hills to us. It is a popular tourist destination for scenic views and photo ops and hence it was crowded. There is binocular available on rent at site @ Rs. 50 for closure view of surroundings. Also several tea and snacks shops were available at site.Written 1 March 2023
- Nice Place to visit if you have kids. Need 2-3 hrs to spend with some tiresome walks. You have to trek high as you go on to see more animals as zoo is situated on top as name sujjest high altitude.
You can easily get vehicles from zoo pont on Mall road on sharing basis at economical rates.
Tiger cage is in starting only so elderly people can avoid going to top as trek is tiresomeWritten 30 December 2021
- This Hanuman Temple (some call this place Hanuman Garhi) in Naukuchiatal, Tehsil Bhimtal, District Nainital, Uttrakhand is managed by Bhakti Dham Trust. The larger than life Lord Hanuman statue in the temple is distinctly visible from the Bhimtal-Naukuchital main road. The temple is very beautiful and having idols of Lord Hanuman, Neem Karoli Baba, Bhakti Maa and Cave of Mata Vaishno Devi in prominence. We stayed here for a night and enjoyed the Lunch and Dinner Prasada. Halwa Prasad is offered to all devotees visiting the temple at lower floor. There are two big halls where one can sit and do prayers and meditation etc. Several books were there related to trust, Bhakti Maa and other religious and spiritual topics for selling. One can do Parikarma of the whole temple complex. There is a Gaushala and a beautiful small garden inside.
We met Shri GS Bisht, who heads the Bhakti Dham Trust. We discussed and assured support in several charitable work they do in villages for school children by providing them winter wears, shoes etc. We listen to the history of Bhakti Dham there. His mother was venerated by masses in this area. She was intensely devoted to Neem Karoli Baba of Kanchi Dham. She did not speak to any one from 1951 to 2013 (kept the Maun Vrat for 62 years until she passed away). Neem Karoli Baba gave her the title of ''Bhakti Maa" (Mauni Mai). On her mother memory Bhakti Dham Trust was established and is serving masses and Sanatan.Written 24 October 2023
- It's an architectural marvel of colonial times. There are two super thick wooden pillars on each side of staircases inside the building and a trident shaped tree in the campus. Believe me it is worth visiting this place for both the above mentioned things. Entry price is Rs. 50 and last entry is at 15:00 pm. One can reach there by taxi, bike or walking.Written 8 October 2023

- This is believed to be the highest place in Nainital and very popular among the tourists. we asked our package tour driver to take us there but he advised that the road to the top is not motorable and he would drop us at the base of this stony and treacherous path from where the distance would be about half a km. So we both started walking hoping that in 15-20 minutes we would be able to cover the distance. However, when we asked the people who were returning, we were advised to go back because it is a long walk of about 2 km. Some people also told us that from another point horse riding was available and we had come to the wrong point for reaching the Tiffin Top. However, we did not want to go back in spite of our old age, my heart problem and wife's knee problem. Finally we reached the top, first took water followed by tea and snacks as there are a few eateries at Tiffin Top. Of course, the view of the Nainital town was simply breathtaking and we felt exhilarated on reaching there. No doubt, we had taken a big risk. Of course, It is a must visit place, also popularly known as Dorothy Seat after the name of of the wife of its discoverer. Even form the horse ride point. we could not have gone for horse riding, and so walking was the only option. However, I shall advise elderly tourists to avoid visit to this place. even by horse riding. The younger tourists who are interested in visiting this peak are advised to have horse riding and should go to another point.Written 29 June 2023

- The stay at Sonanadi was mesmerizing, We wanted to stay for two nights but unfortunately due to Holi the corbett nation park remained closed to outside entry.
The forest hosts a very rich habitat which made the safari and the stay very thrilling.
The stay here was recommended to us by our contact Ms Priyanka Mehra of Banzaara travels. She was very patient and helpful to us for reserving the Gypsy Safari and forest rest house stay inside Corbett National Park and also provided great insights when our trip was still at a planning stage.
