History of Binsar
Binsar has a rich, varied and fascinating history that can be traced back to ancient times. Binsar was the capital of the Chand dynasty, which ruled the Kumaon region between the 7th and 8th centuries. The rulers of the Chand dynasty visited Binsar in summer to enjoy the pleasant weather and peaceful scenery amidst the hills and nature of this serene city. The Binsar region also witnessed a mythical battle between Golu Devta and the Raja of Binsar. Golu Devta, who is believed to be an incarnation of Gaur Bhairav or Lord Shiva, is a mythological and historical god in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand. As a result of a misunderstanding, Golu Devta was beheaded and his trunk fell into Gyarad Dana Golu near what is now Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary and his decisive head fell in Kapkarhan. There is still a temple dedicated to Lord Golu at both these places.Places to Visit in Binsar
