Garur, Bageshwar, Uttarakhand

Garur is a town in the Bageshwar district of the state of Uttarakhand, India.

After Kausani, Garur is midway between Gwaldam and Bageshwar and is a major bus station for KMVN buses.
Nearby places include Kausani, Baijnath, Gwaldam and Bageshwar.

Around 5–6 km from Garur there is a temple of Bhagwati Mata (Kot Ka Mandir) (traces of Ma Bhramri can be found in the last two paragraph of Chapter Eleven of Durga Shaptashati Path – The most sacred Hindu Book equivalent to Gita and Ramayana), which once was a fort owned by the Katyuri Kings.
Also there is a myth that Adi Shankaracharya stayed on this temple overnight while en route to Badrinath.

The market of Garur is one of the oldest in the region (since pre-independence days of the British Rule in India, but the market expanded during 1970 to 2010 with the efforts of social worker and industrialist K D Pandey).
