Bhimtal Complete Travel Guide
Bhimtal is a very attractive city of Nainital. As the name of Bhimtal suggests, there will be a lake, due to which the place is named Bhimtal.
There is a very old belief about Bhimtal that during the time of Mahabharata, Bhima visited the banks of this lake and also visited the temple of Lord Shiva. This Shiva temple is known as Bhimeshwar Mahadev.
A crowd of devotees is still seen in this temple. The temple also has idols of Lord Shiva as well as Shani Dev and Bajrang Bali.

Is Bhimtal lake a natural lake
As I already told you, once the ancient Lord Bheem came here and started digging this place and then water started coming out of the land here. And this took the place of the lake. And it maybe can happen because of the size of the lake it is said to be called Bhimtal. I’m not sure about both but, peoples said the same thing whenever we ask them.
But we may call the Bhimtal lake as a natural lake. This lake has a small island in it where you can go with the help of boats. The island is a very beautiful place and it is a famous picnic spot of Bhimtal. The island has the best restaurants here.
