Almora, Uttarakhand, India :

is one of the best places in Uttarakhand. The prime attraction there is a Temple of Nanda Devi. The best time to visit this place is from September to November and April to June. The language spoken or understood commonly is Kumaoni, English and Hindi. The Beauty here is very scenic and is an untouched place which has a lot more to explore. It seems like this place is blessed and spread by Mother Nature with its pure love. There are tiny houses built on the slopes of the hills which looks beautiful and natives become more beautiful with the splendour of this place. The River Kaushaki (Koshi) and River Salmali (Suyal) flows just beside the city.

Katyur dynasty ruled over Almora in the 9th century and later it was under the rule of Chandravansh in the 16th century. In 1563 King Balo Kalyan Chand established this town and became the capital of Kumaon Region. The bygone time would have been splendour here and this can be seen by the forts, palaces and monuments built by the Chandravansh ruler and Katyur dynasty. Nepali Gorkhas took over Almora in 1790 and then in 1815 it went under the rule of the Britishers.

Almora located on a place which looks like a Shoe shape of a Horse on a hillock which is surrounded by the dense forest of pine and fur tress. The snow capped peaks are just as a frame which is a lovely background of Almora. The other places have been changed due to the modern trends but the Almora has still the same with its natural beauty, ancient culture and tradition. The modern technologies have not come here yet which can be seen by the houses that are built without the use of stones and tiles and the town which is built without proper planning.
