In Devalgarh With Sweta Rawat

  Credit of unifying Garhwal goes to Raja Ajay Pal who in fourteenth century subjugated 52 independent principalities or garhs(forts) and established his rule(Hence the name Garhwal). He shifted his capital form Chandpur Garhi to Devalgarh … and then within a few years shifted it to Srinagar. However, Devalgarh continued to be his unofficial summer capital.

Devalgarh is known for its cluster of ancient temples…many of them in dilapidated state now…. One is dedicated to Gaura Devi…
