Ataria Temple, near Rudrapur

The renowned shrine of Goddess Atariya is 2kms from the bus stand off Rudrapur-Haldwani route. According to a famous folktale, when King Rudra was passing through his chariot, it got stuck in the marshy land after which he decided to build a temple and well at that spot. The Atariya temple is the same; a ten-day fair is held here during the Navratras. Large number of pilgrims visits this shrine during this occasion.
