The amorous view of Himalayas, from Nanda Devi to 5 snow capped peaks of Panchachuli unwraps the Kasar Devi temple near Almora.The place is famous for a temple by the name of Kasar Devi. It has structures dating from 2nd century CE. In 1890's Swami Vivekananda visited the place and meditated here for days. This was the first time when people got to know more about the place. The nearby area is home to pine and deodar trees. it gives a panoramic view of the Himalayas along with the eye pleasing view of Hawabagh Valley.
A large fair known as Kasar Devi fair is organised every year on Kartik Poornima according to the Hindu calendar. The temple is special as the area nearby has a large geomagnetic field. This is so as the temple comes under Van Allen Belt. The two other places discovered by NASA with the same magnetic field are Machu Picchu in Peru and Stone Henge in England. Also, it is predominant that the people who have meditated here at Kasar Devi Temple have shown higher degrees of rejuvenation and peace. A single road runs up high with 200 dotting houses on each side. The village derives its name from the namesake deity Kasar Devi.
