Situated in the divine town of Kalimath, about 5 km from Almora, is the ancient Kasar Devi Temple that dates back to the 2nd Century. The name ‘Kalimath’ comes from two words - 'kali' meaning black and 'math' meaning soil. According to legend, Swami Vivekananda came to this place to meditate and contemplate, giving the place an eerily calm and mystical vibe that attracts many tourists. The Kasar Devi temple was built on a small mountain, providing a full view of the town and the resplendent Hawabagh Valley. Its height and serene atmosphere make it an ideal picnic spot. Surrounded by trees and fresh air, the beauty of the temple lies in its history. Located at a distance of 1 km from the town of Kalimath, the temple can be easily reached on foot and is a refreshing walk opportunity for the tourists. You'll often find foreigners in this area, who have rented accommodation to spend their days in peace and closer to nature.
