Stay at top for sometime to enjoy the view of Haridwar. You need to do this as 1st thing in the morning before the mad rush... More

While sometimes you just don't want to want to be out so early ...today we at departed at 130pm and enjoyed the friendly banter of cross cultural picture taking and making new temporary friends, meeting so many people. We went to the top, stopping at view points, and then returned to the bottom for a snack. My 5th or 6th... More

Nice journey by the ropeway to the top of the Chandi Hill where the temple is located. Scenic view from the spot is excellent. There are many temples in the premises and the area has been well-maintained. Worth a visit during your sight-seeing at Haridwar.

This temple is located on a hill on the opposite side of the river, unlike Mansa Devi (which is located on the har ki paudi side). The cable car ride costs Rs. 160 /- for a two way ride for both Mansa Devi as well as ChandaDevi. This place is better maintained than MansaDevi though. After the cable car ride... More

The day I happened to visit this temple, there was not much crowds. Have heard that the place gets heavily crowded during the season. This temple is a bit out of the town. The rope way is the best option to go up to the temple. You can buy the package ticket at Mansa Devi temple if you want to.... More
