Kasar Devi Temple, Almora, Uttarakhand

Updated: May 2, 2023

The Kasar Devi temple, a 2nd century built, at high altitude of 2,116 metres is part of the well-known Van Alan belt which has huge electro-magnetic particles from the earth’s crust.

I believe the temple have healing powers and removes negative energies as per my experiences.

For the healing powers of this temple, Swami Vivekananda had visited this place in 1890’s and had spent a lot of time meditating here. The temple consist of two different group of temples, one of Kasar Devi and another of Lord Shiva and Bairava. There are only two other spots on Earth, Machu Pichu in Peru, South America and Stonehenge in England where such magnetic fields are experienced, making the area conducive to meditative experiences.

I call this experience as Revelation from Kasar Devi. Suggest to meditate here to gain this experience at least once in a lifetime. It was worth traveling at minus degree up the mountain to gain the meditation experience and having a beautiful view of Trishul Himalayan range from the balcony of the resort where I stayed, Kasaar Jungle Resort.

This place is mystical. Swami Vivekananda came here to meditate not once but three times to Almora.

Who’ve been here as per my research - Rabindranath Tagore, DH Lawrence, Cat Stevens, Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Danish mystic Alfred Sorensen, Harvard psychologist Timothy Leary, Tibetan Buddhism guru Lama Anagarika Govinda and Western Buddhist teacher Robert Thurman to name a few.
