Purnagiri Fair

Many people throng the temple at Purnagiri, which is situated on the top of a mountain on the right bank of the river Kali near Tanakpur, in the district of Champawat. The temple is very crowded during the Navaratris of Paush and Chaitra. Every year a fair is held on Vishuwat Sankranti and this attracts a large number of pilgrims. After the Holi festival, the longest fair of Kumaon (for about 40 days) starts at Purnagiri. Thousands of people visit the shrine these days.
