Places to See in Binsar

Bineshwar Mahadev Temple
Dating back to the 16th century, Bineshwar Mahadev Temple is an important landmark and a must-visit place in Binsar. It was due to this temple that the region was named Binsar. King Kalyan Chand, one of the scions of the Chand Raja dynasty, is believed to have built this temple. The temple enshrines the deity of Lord Shiva. Apart from being a religious place, Bineshwar Mahadev Temple boasts of great architectural excellence. The temple can be an ideal stoppage point on the way to Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary.

Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary

Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 1988, mainly for the conservation and protection of the shrinking broad leaf oak (Quercus) forests of the Central Himalayan region. An epitome of serenity and tranquility, the place extends tourists an unexploited and unruffled beauty.

Khali Estate
Set amidst the Binsar Sanctuary is the Khali Estate - a 26 acre of serene and beautiful land. The estate was once the home of Sir Henry Ramsay, the commissioner of Kumaon from 1856 to 1884. Khali Estate is an epitome of natural beauty and soothing silence. The charming view of the Himalayan range is beautifully coupled with the cooing of the birds. Apart from just resting in the estate, one can also indulge in long treks down to the little villages or up to the Binsar top.

Pariyadeva Pashan
Historically, Binsar has been a great archeological site, thanks to the relics which date back to the Megalithic Age. Pariyadeva Pashan is one such relic, having long stone with cup-marks at the place. Situated on the Almora-Binsar road near Dinapani, it is a must see for tourists.
