Chandi Devi Haridwar

Chandi devi haridwar
Chandi Devi Temple, dedicated to Goddess Chandi Devi is situated on the Neel Parvat at a height of 2,900 metres (9,500 ft) on the Eastern side of the Sivalik Hills in Haridwar. Ma Chandi Devi Temple was built in 1929 by Suchat Singh- The King of Kashmir. However, the main moorti of Ma Chandi Devi in the temple is believed to have been installed in the 8th century by Adi Shankaracharya. The Chandi Devi Temple is one of the Panch Tirth (Five Pilgrimages) located within Haridwar. Chandi Devi Temple is highly seen by devotees as a Siddh Peeth like Mansa Devi Temple, which is a place of worship where desires get fulfilled. It is one of three such Peethas located in Haridwar, the other two being Mansa Devi Temple and Maya Devi Temple.

How to Reach Chandi Devi Temple
  1. Take the 3 km trekking route from Chandighat and reach the shrine by climbing the steps or by walking on the road.
  2. Take the Trollies/ rope-way service- Chandi Devi Udankhatola from the lower station to the Chandi Devi Temple.
There is a dense forest on the other side of the hill. The trekking route is what I personally like as one can spend more time with the beauty of Hills there. The ropeway too offers beautiful scenic views of the Ganges and The Haridwar City.

Travel Tips- Kindly dont feed the monkeys on the route. Never carry nonveg, alcoholic drink or any leather stuff to the temple as they are prohibited.
