INFORMATION ABOUT Rudrapur
Rudrapur is a city and a municipal board in Udham Singh Nagar district in the Indian state of Uttarakhand.
According to a folktale, when King Rudra was passing through, his chariot got stuck in marshy land, so he decided to build a temple and well at that place. The present Atariya temple is the same, at a distance of 2 kms. from the bus stand and half a kilometre away from the Rudrapur Haldwani motor route.
Every year, on the occasion of Navratra a large fair is held here and thousands of devotees come to seek the blessing of Goddess Atariya. The fair is held for 10 days.
