The temple is perfectly located at the bank of Nainital lake, near the Mallital area of Nainital.Temple complex is very clean and well maintained. It's not just for worships, you can sit there and relax feeling the fresh air coming from the lakeside.

Naina Devi temple is one of the several pith of Maa Kaali. Naina Devi temple came into existence when Lord Shiva was carrying the corpse of Sati and her right eye fell to the ground where the temple currently stands.
