  • We had a perfect honeymoon trip to Uttarakhand thanks to All Seasons! When we first started the planning process for the trip, agent Rahul had sent us a draft itinerary based on our general interests, time to spent, and probably the typical stops that a first time visitor to Uttarakhand would like to experience

  • Nitin did a superb job of organizing a fabulous family holiday for seven of us to celebrate special birthdays in April 2016. He paid amazing attention to detail especially as one of our group uses a wheelchair. Nitin was quick to respond to our original inquiry and quick to understand the type of holiday.

  • Arun was our point of contact and we feel he did an outstanding, superb, wonderful job. My wife and I have made several trips with mixed experiences and were a little concerned about going on a fifteen days Himachal trip on our own. But we have to give Arun major props!!! All our transfers, tours and connections went exactly as scheduled

VIRBHADRA TEMPLE

Veerbhadra by the order of Lord Shiva went to Kankhal, Haridwar and ruined the Yagya and finally beheaded Daksha. Later on the request of Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva replaced the head of goat to King Daksha. The vedic ages anecdote connected with the immolation of Sati also tells the stories of other religious places like Dakha Mandir, Kankhal, Haridwar, and Shakti peeths established in all over northern India where the parts of burnt body of Sati dropped, when Lord Shiva carried the remains of her body on his shoulder. I will tell futher in my next columns about this. Veerbhadra also known the apportion (Ansha) of Lord Shiva and worshipped like Lord Shiva and Veerbhadra Mahadev Temple is the same place where Lord Shankar smashed his hair-lock and Virbhadra appeared.
The temple is 1300 years old approx. but the story is thousand years old. Some kings of the middle ages had worked many times on the relics of this temple to keep the vedic stories alive. It is also believed that in Veerbhadra, there is a place where anyone could recall ones last birth life by laying down on the place. But the exact place is extinct meanwhile by divine powers to absolve from misuse.
