In my last post, I have written about Patal Bhuwaneshwar an ancient CaveTemple in Pithoragarh, which is known for its mysteries and number of statues of Hindu God and Goddesses. Today I am back with Kainchi Dham (The Ashram of Baba Neem Karoli), another Tourist place of Uttarakhand which is worldwide famous for its life-changing spiritual reflections.
It is a mountain Ashram located in Nainital in Uttarakhand. The main temple is surrounded by the high mountains, apart from Lord Hanuman, there are also small temples of Lord Rama, Sita, and Goddess Durga. But this temple is mainly famous for Neem Karoli Baba and Lord Hanuman.
