pauraanik sandarbh

skandapuraan ke maanasakhand mein kaha gaya hai ki kaushika (koshi) aur shaalmali (suyaal) nadi ke beech mein ek paavan parvat sthit hai. yeh parvat aur koi parvat na hokar almoda nagar ka parvat hai. yeh kaha jaata hai ki is parvat par vishnu ka nivaas tha. kuchh vidvaanon ka yeh bhi maanana hai ki vishnu ka koormaavataar isi parvat par hua tha.

ek katha ke anusaar yeh kaha jaata hai ki almoda ki kaushika devi ne shunbh aur nishunbh naamak daanavon ko isi kshetr mein maara tha. kahaaniyaaain anek hain, parantu ek baat poornat: satya hai ki praachani yug se hi is sthaan ka dhaarmik, bhaugolik aur aitihaasik mahatva raha hai.

itihaas

aaj ke itihaasakaaron ki maanyata hai ki san 1563 E. mein chandavansh ke raaja baalo kalyaanachand ne aalamanagar ke naam se is nagar ko basaaya tha. chandavansh ki pehle rajdhani champaavat thi. kalyaanachand ne is sthaan ke mahatva ko bhali-bhaaainti samjha. tabhi unhonne champaavat se badalkar is aalamanagar (almoda) ko apni rajdhani banaaya.

san 1563 se lekar 1790 E. tak almoda ka dhaarmik bhaugolik aur aitihaasik mahatva kai dishaaon mein agraneeya raha. isi beech kai mahatvapoorn aitihaasik evam raajanaitik ghatanaaeain bhi ghateen. saahityik evam saanskrutik drushtiyon se bhi almoda samast kumaaooain anchal ka pratinidhitv karta raha.

san 1790 E. se gorakhaaon ka aakraman kumaaooain anchal mein hone laga tha. gorakhaaon ne kumaaooain tatha gadhvaal par aakraman hi naheen kiya balki apna raajya bhi sthaapit kiya. san 1816 E. mein angrejo ki madad se gorakha paraajit hue aur is kshetr mein angrejon ka raajya sthaapit ho gaya.

svatantrata ki ladaai mein bhi almoda ke vishesh yogadaan raha hai. shiksha, kala evam sanskruti ke utthaan mein almoda ka vishesh haath raha hai.

kumaaooainni sanskruti ki asli chhaap almoda mein hi milti hai - at: kumaaooain ke sabhi nagaron mein almoda hi sabhi drushtiyon se bada hai.

kainchi

kainchi, bhuvaali se 7 ki॰mee॰ ki doori par bhuvaaleegaad ke baayeen or sthit hai. neem karauli Baba ko yeh sthaan bahut priya tha. praaya: har garmiyon mein ve yaheen aakar nivaas karte the. Baba ke bhakton ne is sthaan par hanumaan ka bhavya mandir banavaaya. us mandir mein hanumaan ki moorti ke saath-saath anya devataaon ki moortiyaaain bhi hain. ab to yahaaain par neem karauli Baba ki bhi ek bhavya moorti sthaapit kar di gayi hai.

yahaaain par yaatriyon ke thaharane ke liye ek sundar dharmashaala bhi hai. yahaaain par desh-videsh ke aaye log prakruti ka aanand lete hain.

kainchi mandir mein prativrsh 15 June ko vaarshik samaaroh maanaaya jaata hai. us din yahaaain Baba ke bhakton ki vishaal bheed lagi rahati hai. navaraatron mein yahaaain vishesh poojan hota hai. neem karauli Baba siddh purush the. unki siddhiyon ke vishay mein anek kathaaeain prasiddh hain. kehte hain ki Baba par hanumaan ki vishesh krupa thi. hanumaan ke kaaran hi unki khyaati praapt hui thi. ve jahaaain jaate the vaheen hanumaan mandir banavaate the. Lucknow ka hanumaan mandir bhi unhonne hi banavaaya tha. aisa kaha jaata hai ki Baba ko 'hanumaan siddh' tha.

unka naam neem karauli padne ke sambandh mein ek katha kahi jaati hai. bahut pehle Baba ek saadhaaran vyakti the. neem karauli gaaainv mein rahakar hanumaan ki saadhana karte the, ek baar unhein relagaadi mein baithane ki ichha hui. neem karauli ke station par jaise hi gaadi ruki, baabaaji rel ke pratham shreni ke dibbe mein jaakar baith gaye. conductor guard ko jaise hi gyaat hua ki baabaaji bina ticket ke baithe hain to unhonne kaha ki baabaaji, aap gaadi se utar jaaeain. baabaaji muskuraate hue gaadi ke dibbe se utarakar station ke saamane hi aasan jamaakar baith gaye. udhar guard ne seeti bajaai, jhandi dikhaai aur driver ne gaadi chalaane ka saara upakram kiya, kintu ga#i ek inch bhi aage na badh saki. logon ne guard se kaha ki conductor guard ne baabaaji se abhadrata ki hai. iseeliye unke prabhaav ke kaaran gaadi aage naheen sarak pa rahi hai. parantu rel karmachaariyon ne Baba ko dhongi samjha. gaadi ko chalaane ke liye kai koshishein ki gayeen. kai engine aur lagaae gaye parantu gaadi tas se mas tak na hui. ant mein Baba ki sharan mein jaakar conductor, guard aur driver ne kshama maaaingi. unhein aadar se pratham shreni ke dibbe mein bithaaya. jaise hi Baba dibbe mein baithe, vaise hi gaadi chal padi. tab se Baba 'neem karauli Baba' pada. tab se apne chamatkaaron ke kaaran ve sab jagah vikhyaat ho gaye the. apni mrutyu ki antim tithi tak bhi ve hanumaan ke mandiron ko banavaane ka kaarya karte rahe aur du:khi vyaktiyon ki seva karte rahe.

kainchi mein bhi kai dukhiyon ki unhonne seva ki thi. unke paas koi vyakti kyon aaya hai? yeh baat ve pehle hi kehkar aagantuk ko aashcharya mein daal dete the. aaj bhi Baba ke naam par kainchi mein bhoj ka aayojan hota hai.

garam paani :

kainchi se aage 'garamapaani' naamak ek chhota sa nagar aata hai. yeh sthaan haldvaani, kaathagodaam aur almoda ke beech ka aisa sthaan hai jahaaain par yaatri chai peene aur bhojan karne ke liye aavashyak rup se rukate hain. garamapaani ka pahaadi bhojan prasiddh hai. yahaaain ka raayata aur aaloo ke haldi se rang gutake door-door tak prasiddh hai. hari sabjiyon ki yeh mandi hai. yahaaain se door-door tak pahaadi sabjiyaaain bheji jaati hain. pahaadi kheere, mooli aur adarak aadi ke liye bhi garamapaani vikhyaat hai.

yahaaain se aage badhne par khairana aata hai. khairana mein bhuvaaleegaad, kosi mein mil jaati hai. yaheen kosi par ek jhoola pul hai. khairana machhilyon ke shikaar ke liye vikhyaat hai. thoda aur aage badhne par do raaste ho jaate hain. ek maarg raaneekhet ko aur doosra maarg almoda ko chala jaata hai.

almoda ke maarg mein khairana se aage kaakadi ghaat naamak sthaan padta hai. kaakadi ghaat ka praacheen mahatva hai. yahaaain par ek puraana Shiv mandir hai. jab parvateeya anchal mein motor maarg naheen the to badreenaath jaane ke liye yaheen se paidal maarg karnaprayaag ke liye jaata tha. aaj bhi kai dhaarmik yaatri isi maarg se paidal chalakar badreenaath-kedaaranaath ki yaatra karne jaate hain.

kaakadi ghaat ke najadeek hi ek pul kosi par bana hai. us pul ko paar karte hi motor-maarg pahaadi ki choti ki or badhne lagta hai. yeh parvateeya maarg-aitihaasik nagari almoda mein aata hai.

'almoda' samudratal se 1646 meter ki ooainchaai par 11.9 varg kilometer ke kshetr mein faila hua hai. yeh nagari pahaadi ke donon or parvat-choti par basa hua hai. pahaad ke ek chhor se doosare chhor tak laala baajaar hai. yeh baajaar bahut puraana hai aur sundar kate pattharon se banaaya gaya hai. iske alaava almoda mein anya sadkein bhi itni achhi bani hui hain ki paryatak unheen par ghoom-ghoomkar prakruti ka vaastavik aanand lete rahate hain. chaaron taraf hare-bhare jangalon ka saundarya apne aap mein ek vishesh aakarshan paida karta hai. vasant riatu mein almoda ki chhavi darshaneeya ho jaati hai. yeh atyant svaasthyavardhak jalavaayu wala parvateeya nagar hai iseeliye garmiyon mein yahaaain adhik chahal-pahal rahati hai aur sailaaniyon ka jamaghat laga rahata hai.

kumaaooainni sanskruti ka kendra almoda hai. kumaaooain ke raseele geeton aur ullaasapriya lokanrutyon ki vaastavik jhalak almoda mein hi dikhaai deti hai. kumaaooainni bhaasha ka praamaanik sthal bhi yahi nagar hai. kumaaooainni veshabhoosha ka asli rup almoda mein hi dikhaai deta hai. aadhunikta ke darshan bhi almoda mein poornat: ho jaate hain. pahaadi bhojan ke hotel yahaaain kai hain. mithaaiyon mein bhi baal mithaai aur singaudi yahaaain ki prasiddh hai.

kumaaooain ke bhavya darshan karne hetu paryatak almoda aana adhik pasand karte hain. yahaaain se himaalaya ke darshan bhi ho jaate hain aur kumaaooainni jan-jeevan ki vaastavik jaankaari bhi ho jaati hai.

yahaaain kuchh aise sthal hain jo paryatakon, padaarohiyon aur sailaaniyon ko aakarshit karte rahate hain.
