Kapileshwar Mahadev Temple

#Temple in Pithoragarh

One of the major tourist attractions of Pithoragarh is the Kapileshwar Mahadev Temple. It is a cave temple at the top of the hill that gives another splendid view of the misty Himalayas. It is erected in midst of the Soar Valley and is 3 km from the main city.

The temple turns out to be highly crowded on the eve of Maha Shivratri when devotees gather around to offer their prayers. The temple is entirely dedicated to Lord Shiva and is situated 10 km inside a dark cave. It is an expertise of architectural art. The locals believe that it was used by a sage Kapil to meditate. Visiting this temple through the valley and then all along through the cave is an adventure itself.
