Gopeshwar Mahadev Temple, Visit Gopeshwar Mahadev Temple of Uttaranchal, Temple tour of Gopeshwar Mahadev TempleLocation : Chamoli (Uttranchal )
Dedicated To : Shiva
Sanctum Enshrines : Shivalinga

Gopeshvara, situated on a hill-plateau, 3 miles from the town of Chamoli on the bank of the Alakananda, a tributory of the Ganga, is known for the Gopeshvara Mahadeva temple.

Its compound has a large iron trident, bearing two inscriptions, an earlier one of the seventh century mentioning Naga-ending names of four kings and referring to the erection of the trident in a temple of rudra. a later one of 12th century mentions the re-erection of a Vijaya-Stambha (victory pillar) by king Asokachalla.

The existing Shiva temple has a sanctum of design and dimensions analogous to the lakhamandal temple, preceded by a kapili with a prominent sukanasa and a modern rubble-built mandapa. The five-storeyed heavy-shouldered sikhara of the temple, however, is lately restored.

The kapili wall has a plain niche capped by a phamsana model ornamented with gavaksha arches bearing a vertical row of four heads. The kapili has a semi-valabhi roof displaying udgamas on the lateral faces and a figure of dancing siva in front crowned by a lion pouncing on elephant.
