Although far away from each other, these two places are famous for their ancient Shiva temples. While Jageshwar is just 38 kms from Almora with innumerous Shiva temples and legends attached with them, Bageshwar is around 75 kms from Almora. Bageshwar is famous for its confluence of the Rivers, Sarayu and Gomti. The ancient temple dedicated again to lord Shiva, build by the Katyuri rulers attracts may pilgrims to this place, especially in januray on the pious occassion of Makar Sankranti.
There are other places also to be visited from Almora like the Baijanath and the Gananath.
