Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Jhandi Dhar hills in the Himalayas, 35 kilometers away from Almora of Uttarakhand, a state in India. The Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary was named after the Bineshwar Mahadev Temple located in the same hill region.

The Chand Kings were the rulers of the Kumaon region during the 11th - 18th century AD.
