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

temples are good for everybody. At least one gets reason of life here. I liked this place. The more impressive factor to me is that people from all walks visit here. that is awesome.

Finding this place can be a little tricky as no such sign board. But locals can help. Its a very steap climb, all the effort is worth it. Its a place where you can just stad for mins and just absorb the beauty around.

Is situated at decent height from Shoghi, i guess at 7500-8000ft. It has a very nice steep drive upto temple. If you are self driven then you may enjoy this ride up. Temple is nice and clean. You aren't allowed to click pics inside premises.
