Hanol

The ancient village of Hanol is primarily famous for the temple of Mahasu Devta who is the prime deity of the entire Jaunpur-Jaunsaar region. Known for his furious justice, Mahasu Devta is one incarnation of Lord Shiva who has come all the way from Kashmir to get people rid of evil spirits that haunted the region. The beautiful temple architecture resembles trans-Himalayan style and is still in good shape. The temple complex, protected by the Archaeological Survey of India, stands next to the Tons River on the Mussoorie-Mori-Tyuni highway. A Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam guest house near the highway is little secluded from the village and the temple site.
