(Report- Rohit Bhatt)

Almora. Dana Golu Devta Temple in Almora is situated at a distance of about 12 km from the main city of Almora. You must be thinking that whether we are talking about Chitai Golu Devta, but here we are talking about Dana Golu Devta. This temple also has a special recognition. His temples are located in many districts of Kumaon. It is believed that Dana Golu Devta shows the right path to the people who have lost their way.

Local residents say that first the Goluji of Chitai is seen, after that the devotees visit Dana Golu Devta. When a path goes astray in this area, Dana Golu himself shows him the way. It is believed that he also protects people from wild animals.
