Almora

About Almora, jimcorbettnationalparkonline.com

Almora was founded by the Chand dynasty in 1560. The Chands ruled over most of the Kumaon which comprises of the present districts of Nainital, Almora and Pithoragarh. Almora still claims to be the cultural capital of the area. Traces of the old Chand fort, paved roads, wooden houses with beautifully carved facades and homes decorated with traditional murals reflect its heritage. Along with the rest of the UP Himalaya, it was overrun by the Gurkhas in 1798. In the Gurkha Wars of 1814-15, it suffered heavy bombardment by the British as they endeavoured to expel the Gurkhas. Now it is an important market town and administrative centre with an agricultural research station. The picturesque old part of the town is along the ridge. Swami Vivekananda came to Almora and in a small cave at Kasar Devi, 6 kms outside the town, he reputedly gained enlightenment and dreamt that he should share his message with the world.
