The Temple of Chitai, locally known as Golu Devata Chitai Temple, is located 9 km from Almora City on State Highway No. 37. This Temple is dedicated to Gollu or Goljyu Devta, an Avtar (incarnation) of Lord Shiva in the form of Gaur Bhairav, built during the Chand regime.
The temple is known as the abode of the God of Justice. There are various beliefs that cause people to come and pray here. You will love the soft tinkle of the many bells caressed by the winds, hung by devotees as an act of offerings, wishing or thanksgiving can be heard far and wide. Hence, the temple is also called the temple of a million bells.
