Goddess Naina Devi Temple, Nainital Reviews
Divine feelings amongst cool breeze. This place is situated at the banks of Naini lake and is a crowded temple. However this is a must go and you will get excellent views of lakes from here. You can buy Prasad outside the temple. A Tibetan market is also there just outside the temple. It's easily accessible and a nice place to visit.
I would call it a captivating place... Being the lake to one of it's side and a supermarket to other makes it a prestigious place!! The temple is soo conspicuous and is usually crowded
