If you have not trekked along a creek, you have not trekked at all. At least, that’s what the old village folk say, here in Natadol.
Nestled in the Kumaon Hills is an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Locals call it “Pracheen Vishnu Mandir”. From Kumaon folklores to ancient Hindu scripture “Skandpuran”, there are many mythological links to this ancient temple.
A short walk away from the cottages, there is a small temple. Nested on a hilltop, the temple is dedicated to Saim Devta. Worshiped as one of the guardians of the village, Saim Devta provides prosperity. Some of the local folk consider Saim to be an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The temple is highly revered and is said to have been initially established by Saim Devta himself.
