  NAINITAL - PARVATHI DEVI SHRINE

In the mountainous range of Nainital and its environs there were built excellent shrines for gods and goddesses during the reign of Chand dynasty in the medieval period. Some with standing the ravages of weather are attracting regular stream of devotees due to awe-some sports demonstrated by the divinities. As tile worshipful deities proved themselves the veritable Kalpavrikshas, the devotional zeal of the adorer touched the meridian by the construction of gigantic temple and installing in them superbly chiselled icons. In the famous Baijnath temple complex built on the bank of river Gomathi there are many shrines both in ruins and well-maintained condition,  and among them a separate exclusive temple for Mother Parvathi comes first. Built in the Himalayan architectural style it is imposing in dimensions and rich in ornamentation but its former glory waned and davished to a point of insignificance. The icons with their big sizes fine polish and neat execution are still drawing bhaktas and scholars as well. The temple dedicated to Mother Parvathi in the spacious campus of Baijaath is a standing proof of this truth as it is holding irresistible attraction on the devout public even today. The icon is about feet in height and looks extraordinarily grand. It wrings veneration at first sight itself. The architecture characteristic of upper Himalayan style is quite attractive. It is a worth visiting shrine, and all the tourists and pious bhaktas invariably visit this after the Lord Maheswar's shrine.

It lies 72 km off Nainital accessible by bus.
