Travel Through Time – Nainital

Written By: Manoj Menon

Nainital is also known as the 'Lake District of India' and is located in the Himalayan Belt. It is situated amidst the Kumaon Hills and is blessed with beautiful lakes.

It is referred to as 'The Lake of Three Sages' or the 'Tri-Rishi-Sarovar', in the Manas Khand. The three sages, namely Atri, Pulastya, and Pulaha, stopped at Nainital to quench their thirst.

Today this serene and beautiful region is major tourist hub. Here is a vintage pictorial guide of this place.
