Bageshwar - land of the Tiger OR Tiger God OR Land of Lord Shiva

The stunningly beautiful tourist destination of Bageshwar, believed to be blessed by none other than God Shiva, is situated in the eastern Kumaon region, Uttarakhand. Beautifully located on the banks of two renowned rivers -- Gomati and Saryu – the tourist place of Bagaeshwar enjoys great religious, cultural and historical import. No wonder, it is much thronged by the visitors from all over India and beyond.

Bageshwar has several ancient temples belonging to the various incarnations of God Shiva and Goddess Parvati dating back to 10th century AD. It is said that Bageshwar frees people from the continuing cycle of life and deaths. The Nilaparvat at Bageshwar– the residence of the 33 crore Hindu Gods -- is picturesquely situated between the two rivers - Saryu and Gomti. Nilaparvat enjoys more spiritual value than even the Vindhyancha, and it is believed that those who breathe their last between the Suraj Kund and the Agni Kund achieve nirvana at the feet of God Shiva.

History & Myths

Legends suggest that Markandey -- a highly venerated sage – lived at Bageshwar. He meditated days and nights long to appease Lord Shiva and get his blessings. Much impressed, Lord Shiva often paid his devotee visits during nights in the disguise of a 'Bagh' (Tiger).
