The temple has the chandi devi shrine and also anjanneya devi (mother of Hanuman ji) shrine. it is not as neat as the mansa devi shrine but the view... More

Visited in December 2011. Beware of the monkeys and the young priests who wants to know which country you come from and they ask you to drop off monies at every idol you worship at the temple.

Fantastic place. The cable car is great, but the best way to visit is to walk up (from the back) and get there in time for dawn. Quiet, no crowds and powerful. It's an incredible experience.

Their is another temple of Ma Anjani, Mother of Lord Hanuman located near to Ma Chandi Devi Temple. Must visit place, Stay away from Monkeys..

Travelled by udan khatola to take mata's darshan. Comfortable darshan at mata's place. However, was accompanied by a disabled man who was given concessionary ticket, but no facilities / amenities for having a comfortable darshan.
