- The FRI building by itself is an architectural marvel with its brick walls & limestone. Huge pillars & lots of greenery around.

- Tibet is nearby and this temple takes us there without visa or passport. The monks and the lawns and the statues especially the rolling bells which give the monastery the nom de plume of Mind Rolling Monastery. Inner peace is achieved by rolling these bells and by meditation of this beautiful place - an escape with a spiritual attraction.Written 21 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is the place from where the best and the smartest persons emerge after being trained by the cream of Indian Army. Place of pride for every Indian and a must for every visitor, if one can get access to it, in Dehradun, just to see how young lads are converted to brave shining Army officers in a span of few years.Written 22 December 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is a good family tourist attraction located in Rajaji National forest area. A peaceful river flowing amongst jungle and siing on the rocks enjoying nature is a great fun.

It was my first visit to Uttarakhand as a solo woman traveller.
I would say, if you are a solo woman traveller and want to go on your first venture, Anjali is the right person to start with. She is a warm person with a wealth of knowledge about the places she takes us to. Experience of the whole journey was amazing. Visit to Kedarnath temple is beyond words.......Written 13 November 2022
- Not many people know about this fantastic museum. I feel this since even our driver, who was a localite, never knew that the ONGC headquarters had such a fantastic museum.
This is by far one of the best and the most impressive museums I have ever visited and rather a first-time visit to an oil museum. When we visited the museum, we were the only ones since it had been recently opened post the COVID pandemic. But what we saw and experienced is nothing short of sheer brilliance.
There is a whole host of information on everything related to fossil fuels and what ONGC does for the country. The biggest highlight is that they have created mini working models of many processes that are done for the processing of oil from the earth. This includes models such as fractional distillation, digging for extraction of oil, etc. Other than that, the museum also contains a live map of the Mangalore refinery. A live map indicates they have placed buttons on the dashboard. As you click those buttons, you can see with lights blinking the various storages such as diesel, jet fuel, etc. And also what other processes and machines are located in which part of the refinery.
They have also kept real instruments such as the various kinds of drill bits and pipes used in the extraction of crude oil. There is also a snapshot of India's history and a small tube containing oil from the first extraction at India's Digboi oil field in Assam.
All in all, I would say if you are in Dehradun, do not miss visiting this museum. This is super amazing, and if there are school kids, this is one place that will be really valuable to them in terms of gaining knowledge from what is directly shared by ONGC. Simply fantastic museum !!!Written 14 November 2021

Buddha temple near clement Town, Sulphur stream at Shastrathara is close to visit.Written 4 July 2022

- This mall is nicely located in the center of the city. The mall is neither so big like the Pacific Mall nor so small like Times Square Mall.Parking Rs.30/- for four wheelers for 4 hours, the mall has a very good movie hall “Movie Lounge”.This one is the best movie hall, but has only 2 screens and screen 1 is also vert small like that of a theater in your home. Besides this the mall is famous for Westside, Fresh n Easy shop and also a very good restaurant “The Tavern” in its. Generally not so crowded.Written 21 May 2020
- A small trek of exactly 45 minutes takes you to the top, where the temple of Ma Santala Devi is located.Prefarable to go during early morning between 6-8 am in the months of Mar-Jun as the temperature is normal during this time. There are no sheds,shops etc from bottom of the hill to the temple. So when the sun going above it may be difficult to climb. Yes some benches are there in between to take small break. Just climb slowly enjoying the nature. On the top it is very calm,serene and beautiful. Not so crowded, so you can have darshan peacefully. Don’t carry Prasad etc from below as there are enough shops near the temple. Along with these eateries are also there.Written 19 May 2020
- Nestled in the lush green area of Rajpur and serene environment is located Ramakrishna Mission. Great place to visit the mission. It runs an eye hospital.Written 14 August 2019
