Nagnath in Champawat
A wooden carved double-story structure in the area that is also the oldest and best-preserved Lord Shiva shrine in Champawat. According to locals, the Nagnath Temple worships Lord Shiva in his perpetual form as the wielder of serpentine creatures, symbolizing his detachment from the world as well as his love for the outcast creatures. Nag is the Indian cobra, and Shiva is known to wear the snake around his neck and has a soft spot for it. Guru Gorakhnath, a noted sage of the hills, built the Nagnath Temple.
Despite the destruction caused by the Rohilla and Gorkha tribes, the temple has been restored and now features an intricately carved wooden doorway in the Kumaoni style of architecture from the 18th century. Visit here to breathe in the old-world air and see some exclusive Kumaoni-style architecture. The hilly towns of North India worship Lord Shiva of Hindu mythology as their primary deity. It is believed that Shiva is the conqueror of death and that he saves all of his devotees from all kinds of trouble and makes their lives peaceful and prosperous.
