Dunagiri Temple Reviews & Ratings
Great place. On the top of hill surrounded by mountain. You fill feel the peace and energy.
My peaceful abode. The temple is a very calm and serene place, with a very spiritual aura in the air. It can be visited from dwarahat, from where you get local transport for dungairi, and then yiu have to climb few stairs. It can be done by people of all age with moderate health. The stairs have a shed above it to protect from sun and rain. The place is bit cold when you climb up to temple, better to pack a sweater if you are planning to visit here. The nearest famous place is a Ranikhet, the house of Kumaon Regiment, which is about 45 km from temple. The temple has a annapurnalaya, where you can get free prasad (puri and aloo) of you reach before 1200 pm.
