The inside of the temple is really very old and quite understandably so as well. The dunagiri temple attracts a large number of devotees and pilgrims during the months of Navratras. Pantnagar Airport is the nearest airport from the Dunagiri temple and the nearest railway station is the Kathgodam railway station which is about 140km away from the temple. The Dunagiri temple can be visited throughout the year. The temple is dedicated to Dunagiri Devi. The temple is situated at a hilltop being bounded by forest.
This temple attracts a lot of tourists throughout the year. According to mythology, Lord Hanuman from the Ramayana while carrying sanjivni buti for curing the injured Lakshmana while he was carrying a mountain to lanka, dropped some portion of it in the Dunagiri temple and that is how the temple actually came into being.
