Kalimath Temple (Rudraprayag, Uttarakhand) – One of the Siddha Peeths of the Region

Guptkashi to Kalimath distance by road is 9.5 Kms approx.

(The road from Guptkashi to Kalimath is a jungle route. Interesting drive)

There is a holy kund at Kalimath temple which opens only once in a year on Kaalratri day. Four hours of tantrik puja is done and holy kund is closed again. The great poet Kalidas did his studies at Saraswati temple in Kalimath and stayed at a nearby village – Kaviltha.

Re: Accommodation at Kalimath there is guest house. Devotees may stay at a very nominal cost – Rs. 250/- per night.

If a devotee wishes he may visit Kalishila situated on top of a hill approx. 6-7 km trek from Kalimath. 64 yantra are present on a shila.

Note: 12 – 2 noon Kalimath temple is closed.

To reach Kalimath first one has to reach Guptkashi. Max jeep is available on a frequent basis from Guptkashi to Kalimath.
