Nainital is known as the Lake District of India in modern times due to the obvious likeness of the place to the Lake District in England. However, mythology will take you to the times of Shiva and Parvati when the eyes of Shiva’s consort dropped in the lake while the body was carried to Kailash. The word Naini of Naini Tal, therefore, has obvious reference to the eyes of Parvati. The beauty of Nainital is what draws hordes of visitors to the place each year especially during summers. The place is famous for its lakes no doubt but is also well-known on account of its beautiful architecture.
