Almora

Almora , Uttarakhand

Think of a town on a cresent shaped mountain more than 6000 feet above sea level. In the Kumaon mountains of Himalayas in the state of Uttarakhand you find this place called Almora. Famous from the Vedic age the moment you step into this place you know you are yet to learn so many things about this world. A town of temples with the Goddess Nanda Devi Temple situated right in the middle of it, Almora has always attracted the pious and the devotees. The reverence is not only because of the temples but also because of the history behind this very place which will quite baffle you. The other interesting thing you may have heard of is the Almora sheep wool. Apparently they are the warmest woollen garments that you will ever come across and you do need some out here in the Himalayas. One can buy marvelously made woolen garments from Almora town shopping complexes. Koshi (Kaushaki) and Suyal (Salmali) rivers flows by the side of this town and the town, bearing the evidence of Chandravansh and Katyur dynasty who ruled Almora during 15th and 16th centuries in Forts, monuments and palaces. Quite evidently this is a place which is culturally and traditionally very rich and will astound you by role it has played in our history. Almora probably celebraetes the most number of festivals of all places as it is very influenced by all religions. It has retained the culture to the last bit. Located in the very lap of natural luxury , this very busy town is a hub of great learning and experiences and living here is truly a novel experience in itself. Almora is a must see place, just pack some woollen garments beforehand.
