Garjiya Devi Temple – Located atop a hill and flanked by the River Kosi, Garjiya Devi Temple is a shrine you must visit. The holy temple is situated in Garjiya Village and is 14 km from Ramnagar. Dedicated to Goddess Parvati, the temple is thronged by devotees through the year. Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesh, Goddess Saraswati, and Baba Bhairon are also worshipped here.
The trek to reach the temple is lined with breathtaking scenery that makes the climb to the top seem effortless. During Karthik Poornima, a huge mela is organised here, and visiting during this festive season is one of the offbeat things to do in Corbett.

Devidhura Temple, Champawat – The tale of the ‘Temple Tiger’ which is often spoken of at Jim Corbett National Park has its origins in the Devidhura temple complex.
