The district Gharwal in Uttar Pradesh is infinitely famous for ancient temples built for all denominations of Hindu divinities. Besides these mandirs, the all purifying and ever-flowing rivers like Ganga, Yamuna etc.. take their birth and are sanctifying the land from time immemorial. The name Gharwal conjures up a colourful picture of Hindu temples with saffron flags fluttering over them.

This sacred Devi spot lies on the holy banks of Saraswati, flowing near Mandakini, a tributary of Ganges. Here are found three murtis-Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati and Mahakali, the Kriyasakti, Jnanasakti and Ichchasakti aspects of the Omkaraswarupini Adiparasakti. These Devis are ardently worshipped by the yatris going to the world renowned Kedarnath temple. There is a famous thirtha in which yatris invariably bathe before going further towards Kedarnath and it goes by the name Narayanakoti thirtha. So the entire zone is dotted with holy places inviting indispensable visitation from every visitor. Many rulers like Maharaj of Dharbhanga lured by the special sanctity of this area contributed their mite in endowing temples with yantras and conducting yagnas. There is a mutt engaged in preaching and doing meditation throughout. Hence this place is occupying a coverable place in Uttarkhand.

It lies on the way to Kedarnath temple, accessible by bus and train journey upto Rishikesh.
