A holiday in the Club Mahindra Binsar Valley is incomplete without a chance to Explore the 9th Century Katarmal Sun Temple. Located atop a hill approximately 82 kms from the Binsar Valley Resort, the Katarmal Sun Temple will appeal to the traveller, to the explorer, to the pilgrim, to the artist and to the adventure enthusiast.

The Katarmal Sun Temple was built by the Katyuri Kings of the Kumaon region in the 9th Century CE. The temple is a magnificent example of the divine artistry of India’s ancient past. The beautiful architecture, the intricate carvings of the idols, the splendid views from the temple (thanks to its location on top of a hill) all make the 9th Century Katarmal Sun Temple a must visit destination when you holiday in Binsar. The best time to visit the temple is from the month of November through February. It is said that during this period, the rays of the Sun fall directly on the idol of the Sun God in the main temple, making it an absolute divine experience for the traveller.

The temple is home to the Sun God, yes but also to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, Lord Narayan and Goddess Lakshmi and many other Hindu Gods and Goddesses. The climb to the temple can be exhausting for some, but the temple and the views from the top make it all worthwhile. It would be a good idea to wear footwear that will aid the climb and to carry some water. When planning a visit to the Katarmal Sun Temple, do check with our reception for any details that you may require.
