Your visit to Shimla is incomplete if you don't visit this temple. Entire surrounding is heavenly. We performed puja & went around the temple. Also, you can pledge your wish to the Goddess & get prashad from Panditji.

There is quite a steep climb from the car park to this temple though some people actually get there by using an even steeper path from Shimla. There are monkeys galore and you can rent a stick to keep them at bay and help you with your climb for 10 rupees!

the views were beautiful. We visited the temple on "Holi" so had the entire complex to ourselves however I believe it is extremely crowded with lines of devotees extending to a km or so during navratri days
