Project #PhotoGuides (1) - A Roofless Shrine in the Himalaya!
The Roofless Shrine of Shikari Devi is a unique spectacle. The vantage point offers a unique view of three mountain ranges spread out in every direction. The temple is located at one of the highest points in the whole district and that's what makes it a guardian in the literal sense.
There are over 500 steps that lead to the temple and one really can feel their heart pumping at supersonic speeds while climbing them stairs.
This temple is now connected to a road which remains closed only during the winter months (December - February).
If you are interested in more details, you can refer my detailed travel guide for Shikari Devi Trekking Journey.
There's another interesting trek that leads to this temple and you can download the GPS Log for the same here at GPS Log for Shikari Devi Temple Trek

#PhotoGuides is a travel and photo series initiative by @devilonwheels & @goel.tarun. It is dedicated to introducing some of the amazing places on this earth to everyone on Steemit. Places that make you get out of your couch and wander in this beautiful world. It is a small attempt from my side to share my travel knowledge on Steemit and help promote some of the remotest yet most beautiful places I/we have visited in the Himalayas and elsewhere. I hope you love and plan your trips to these places in time to come. If you have any questions or doubts in planning such a trip, I will be happy to help you here.
Can I participate in #PhotoGuides?
If you know about such amazing places and wish to contribute in this series, I will request you to use this #PhotoGuides tag so that it helps all fellow Steemians to refer such wonderful places of this earth under one tag. Also, if possible, I will request you to share some quick facts about the place you are sharing in above format to keep the travel information simple and concise.
What do I get in return?
Well, I believe, as much as you love to share your travel knowledge and wonderful places you have visited with fellow Steemians, you may feel more motivated if there are some rewards in it, too (and we all do). As of today, we may not have enough Steem Power to hold a contest or reward you with some heavy upvotes for your contributions. However, I do ensure that we will look forward to your post as loyal readers under the #PhotoGuides tag and if it is worth enough, will upvote with whatever little worth of vote we have with my current and future Steem Power 😎😎
