  • It felt great when it came Very good place. The evening view is worth seeing. And cold air Naini Lake is worth seeing everything. And between this, the temple of Naina Devi Mata feels a calm place.At night it seems as if it is Diwali everyday. From the light of the house built on the mountain, it seems like it has come to heaven......…☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️☺️

  • This is a temple (also known as one of the शक्तिपीठ) where goddess sati's eye is located, previously there was a small temple which got damaged by natural disaster and now has been renovation very well. Located on the nani lake side temple had a very peaceful environment.
