Purnagiri Fair


Every year Purnagiri 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.

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.
