Perched on a saddle shaped ridge, at an altitude of 1646 mtr above sea-level is the ancient town of Almora. The natural beauty of Almora is greatly enhanced by the surrounding hills, which are covered with dense forests of fragrant pine and other conifers, each crowned by a temple. It is different from other hill resorts in Uttarakhand, as it has not been deserted by its senior citizens who made some mark in life. It has retained the aura of being a hub of educational and cultural activities, and because it was patronised by the Chand rulers and Britishers alike. Nature has made Almora a trekkers’ town and from here one can venture forth on to exhilarating treks past soaring pines and glades of ferns, rhododendrons and wild flowers to the dramatic spectacle of snow and stark mountains.
In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the Chand dynasty ruled Kumaon from Champawat. As they annexed larger areas in the west, they found it difficult to administer their kingdom from Champawat and looked for a more central place. In 1560, Bhishma Chand selected the Khagmara Hills as his new Capital and gave it the name Almora, but before he could move there, he was slain.
His successor, Balo Kalyan Chand established the new capital. Legend has it that the capital was moved to this site because, when Balo Kalyan Chand was hunting in the dense forests of Khagmara, he chased a hare which to his surprise changed into a tiger in the thicket. It was considered an auspicious event and so the site where the tiger appeared, was selected for the palace.
