Tarkeshwar Temple

It is an ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva surrounded by thick Cedar trees. It is located 38 km from Lansdowne at an altitude of 1800 m to the north east of Lansdowne on road Lansdowne-Deriyakhal.


 Lansdowne (town) is one of the quietest hill stations of India and is  popular since Britishers came to India. Lansdowne is unlike other hill  stations as it is well connected with motorable roads but remote in its  own way. It is situated at an altitude of 1,700mts above sea level  surrounded with thick oak and blue pine forests in the Pauri Garhwal  district of Uttarakhand state. Lansdowne got its name from Lord  Lansdowne, who was the then Viceroy of India during the period of  1888 - 1894. Presently, Lansdowne has the command office of the  Garhwal Rifles division of the Indian Army.
