    "Mukteshwar Temple, also known as Mukteshwar Dham, is an ancient Hindu shrine nestled in its namesake town in the district of Nainital. The hilly town of Mukteshwar attributes its name to this 350 years old temple, which is considered as a prominent place of worship in Kumaon. Perched atop a hillock, 2312 metres above the sea level, this temple offers a commanding vista of the entire picturesque valley. Dedicated to Lord Shiva – the Supreme Hindu deity, this temple enshrines a white marble Shiva Linga with a copper yoni.

    Since years, this temple has been a significant shrine for Agaries – an iron ore miner community and people from Maheshwar sect. It has also been mentioned as one of the 18 important Shiva temples in Hindu scriptures. The shrine has simple architecture with a flight of stone stairs that lead devotees to the main shrine.
