One of the sacred places to visit in the area is the Mukteshwar temple. Dedicated to lord Shiva, it is a legendary pilgrimage and Mukteshwar has acquired its name from the name of the temple. It is situated at the top of a hill and can be reached by climbing a series of steep stone stairs. For those who are deeply religious, trekking to the temple can be a heavenly experience, in part because of the natural splendor of the place. The temple is adorned with a marble Shivling and idols of some other Hindu deities.

Further, it was developed into the Indian Veterinary research Institute. There is a library and museum as well inside the institute campus.
Just before you hit Chaulli on the way up, a black metal strip on a tree points out the way to the Methodist Church. The narrow path has been cut in rock and polished smooth over the years by passing hooves and feet, so watch your step. The church is homely, in keeping with the town it was built for. Its walls and tin roof are well preserved. The steeple has a bell presented by a certain Barbara, in memory of her parents, on Christmas Day. The only way to find out what treasures lie concealed behind the church's low wooden door is to come between 3 and 4 pm on a Sunday. At other times, you will find it locked.
