Jageshwara in Almora district of Uttarakhand in India is in the cradle of nature with high mountains, tall devadar trees, deep valleys and sinuous roads. The serene beauty, the heavenly feeling and the divine experience and above all 124 temples; big, small and even smaller in size, are mesmerising. These were constructed in c. 7th-8th cent. C.E to c. 16th cent. C.E. by Katyuri and Chanda Kings. Jageshwara is the place referred as 'Nagesh' in the list of twelve Jyotirlingas.

In year 2002 I with my family went to Jageshwara for the first time. It was a pleasure trip and it was not actually a trip of this place. We were originally searching for Bageshwara on net and incidentally found the name of this place. In comparison to Bageshwara it seemed to be more peaceful, having lesser tourist load and thus lesser crowd and noise.
