Dwarahat lies at a distance of 32 km from Ranikhet on the way to Karnaprayag. This small town is home to a group of 55 ancient temples, tucked into the mountainside. The temples, whose presence was forgotten for a long while, were built by the Katyuri kings. At one time, they were renowned for their beautiful architecture and the temple design hews closely to the motifs in the Gurjari school of art.

Dwarahat lies in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand and like the region itself, is surrounded by thick green forests and gently rolling hills. The region seems to have been a pilgrimage hub of sorts in the past. Just 20 km away from Dwarahat lies the Maa Doonagiri Temple. Legend holds it that the mountain on which the temple stands was brought to the region by Lord Hanuman.
