This hill station in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand was once the capital of the Chand dynasty in the mid-16th century. Today it is popular as a summer retreat and is also visited by travellers for its famous Dusshera celebrations and the Nanda Devi Mela. Almora is also home to some of the important temples in the Kumaon region.

Unlike Shimla, Ranikhet, Nainital and Mussoorie, which were developed by the British as hill stations, Almora has no such history. It was in 1560 AD that Almora came into light when Raja Balo Kalyan Chand shifted his capital from Champawat to Almora.
