Garjia Devi Temple

The Garjiya Devi Temple, dedicated to Goddess Parvati, is a well-known Hindu pilgrimage site. This temple is in Garjiya village near Ramnagar, on the outskirts of the Corbett National Park. 

This must-see temple is perched on a ledge in the middle of the Kosi River and is a must-see attraction. 


A steep staircase leads to the top of the temple, where a 4.5-foot-tall idol of Girija Devi can be found.

It's time to take a break from the forest, natural beauty, and heritage of Ramnagar and engage in some spiritual practises. The Garjiya Devi temple is located on the banks of the Kosi River and is reached by a steep climb atop a rock via a flight of stairs.

Along with stalls selling pooja products for deity worship, there are also stalls selling food and tea. 

The view from the top of the rock, where the temple is located, is spectacular, with the mountains and the Kosi River contributing to the beauty.


Many people sit by the river and admire the serene beauty that surrounds them; however, the water level increases during the monsoon, so a visit during this period is best avoided.
