FAQs on Jageshwar

Can you suggest an itinerary for Jageshwar?

Jageshwar isn't the type of place that will take too much time to cover unless you are a culture and architecture fanatic. Start the morning by paying a visit to the Mahamrityunjay temple in the town, and have an early breakfast at any of the dhabas nearby. Pay a visit next to the Archaeological Museum next, to learn more about the history of the area. Get some lunch packed on the way out of the city, and head to Jageshwar temple about 2 km from the town. Make sure to tour the temple properly and learn of all the historically relevant facts about the most visited temple in the area. Your last pit stop would then be the Dandeshwar temple, where you can stay till late evening, visit a nearby dhaba for some local food like aloo puri, cleanse the platter with some dessert like the balmithai and sit back to enjoy the cool evening winds of Jageshwar.
