About Nainital

This pretty and popular hill station is in the foothills of the outer Himalayas and situated at an altitude of 2,084 metres above sea level. It is named after the emerald green eyes of Parvati, Shiva consort. Dotted with lakes, Nainital has earned the epithet of 'Lake District ' of India.  The hill station town of Naini Tal was founded in 1841, with the construction of the first European house (Pilgrim Lodge) by P. Barron, a sugar trader from Shahjahanpur. Nainital is set in a valley containing a pear-shaped lake, approximately two miles in circumference, and surrounded by mountain. "Naini" is derived from the temple of goddess Naini which was built on the bank of the lake but later got destroyed due to land-slides in the year 1880. Tallital (Lake’s Foot) is at the southeastern end of the lake. The 1.5 km promenade known as the Mall leads to Mallital (Lake’s Head) at the northwestern end of the lake. Most hotels and guest houses are strung out along the Mall between Mallital and Tallital. Today, the town has emerged as one of the most important hill resorts of India.
