Dwarahat is sometimes referred to as the "Khajuraho of Kumaun" due to number of temples in different parts of the town. Archaeologically, the group of 55 temples at Dwarahat can be divided into eight groups: Gurjar Dev, Kachahari Deval, Mandev, Ratan Deval, Harisidh Deval, Mrityunjay, Badrinath and Kedarnath. These temples were constructed between 10 to 12 centuries CE and are now under the care of Archaeological Survey of India (ASI).
