Jaurasi is a mountain range, situated between the middle of the Salt and Dwarahat assembly of Almora district of Uttarakhand. It is situated between Ramganga and Vinod rivers, which is about 6500 feet high. This mountain range extends from the confluence of Ramganga and Vinod rivers, from Kedar to the top of Dudhatoli. The area adjacent to this mountain range is also known as 'Jaurasi range [1]'. In this mountain range, there is Jaurasi, Gairkhet, Ghaniyal Pokhar, Asurgadhi, Daanu Than, Chaubatia, Garhwal Bunga, Jadapani, Durga Devi, Kaliya Linguna, Nagchulakhal and Phulang Mountain and it is absorbed in the thick forests of the Dudhaatoli. Connecting Its biggest feature is that it is situated on the combined boundary of three districts of Uttarakhand - Almora, Chamoli and Pauri. On one side there is Chaukhutiya, Masi, Ranikhet and on the other side is Deghat, Syaldey, Bhikiyasain and its upper side are Gairsain and Nagchulakhaal. The British made many rest houses for their stay here, from which only Jaurasi Dak Bangla is present and the maintenance is done by the state government. The Dak Bangla of Kelani has just been transformed into ruins, which are still only remains. Being located at the altitude, there is a huge shortage of water, which is also the main reason for the migrat from here. In order to meet this shortage of water, the government has approved the Asurgarhi Pumping Drinking Water Scheme from Ramganga river, which is also likely to boost tourism in the region.

Scenic spots[edit]

Jaurasi Bhagwati Mandir- Bhagwati Temple is situated in the middle of Jaurasi and is built by Baba Omi. According to the tradition of the old people, this temple was constructed by Om Baba (now also known as Omi Baba). It was at that time that our country was divided into different princely states and at that time the statue of Bhagwati Mata was established here by Shri Daulat Singh Ji, the King of Gwalbina. Now every year, Jaurasi Mela is also organized on the Navami of Chaitra month every year.

Asurgarhi Mandir The height of about 7,000 feet is the highest mountain in the Jaurasi region. From here, the philosophy of all four directions of the region becomes very easy. From here there are visually visible sightings of Nadeena (Gewar), Manila (Chaukot), Dudhatoli, Bugyal, Brahmdhungi and Himalayas. According to the aphorism, Pandavas were hidden during the time of the agyatvaas, now this place also known as Chaukhutiya, at that time it was Viratnagari and in the Asurgarhi, was the kingdom of Asur Kichak. There was a fierce battle on this place of Bhimsen and Kichak, who ended up after killing Kichak by Bhima in Nitayeerau (Rampaduka). Here, the local people have established Asur Mata's temple and changed its name to Asurgarhi temple. On the first day of the Bhadra Maas, there is also a fair every year on the day of Ghee Sakranti. The most important scheme of the Jaurasi region is to set up Asurgarhi Drinking Water Scheme [4] from Ramganga at this place.
