Almora

Founded in 1568, the cantonment township of Almora is considered the cultural heart of the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand. It is set on a ridge at the southern edge of the Kumaon Hills of the Himalaya range. In the shape of a horse saddle shaped hillock, it is surrounded by thick forests of pine and fir trees. The snow-capped Himalayas can be clearly seen in the background.

Almora got its name from "Kilmora" a short plant found nearby region., which was used for washing the utensils of Katarmal Temple. The people bringing Kilmora were called Kilmori and later "Almori" and the place thus got christened as "Almora".
