The mansa devi ropeway ride is great to have an aerial view of haridwar as you reach the shrine. It is quite crowded with a lot of piligrims. they have a pedestrian path too but that would take at least an hour to reach the top. The temple precincts are quite congested as is the whole of haridwar. The view... More

If you plan to visit both the temples start early , preferably by 7 am. One should buy combined tickets for ropeway to mansadevi , chandi vevi and bus from Mansa devi to Chandi devi and vice versa. The advantage of combined ticket is that one gets preference to rope way at Mansa. There is no such facility at Chandi... More

Rope way is good and a nice experience. But every where people share lot of money in temples which could be regulated by authorities.

There is only one thing they care about at Mansa Devi and that is money. Impossible to feel any spiritual energy when one is constantly being hounded for money and more money and more more money money money. So very sad. People go because it's closer to Har-ki-pauri, but try the magnificent uncorrupted Chandi Devi instead. Plus the ropeway at... More

We reached this place, just to know that we will have to wait for more than an hour 30 minutes to get to the ropeway. Someone told us to walk instead. We gave up the idea of going up through the ropeway and started walking instead. Initially, you will have to take stairs but for a very short distance. Then... More

We went in off season but still had to bear long exhausting line for the ropeway. The temple is beautiful however the waiting time ruined the fun for me. If you are travelling with children or senior citizens I will not recommend this place.

It's a pretty temple.... Very old architecture but the ambience and view is soothing. About the temple one has to be careful and there are small small temples inside the temple of diff gods... It's better one just visits it and moves on unless you want to keep spending. There is no end to spend money in temples but better... More

Mansa Devi Mandir is located not far from Haridwar on the mountain, which can be reached by cable car or on foot (about an hour - a half). Very nice view of the city and the Ganges, and the entrance to the funicular is surrounded by a beautiful garden with sculptures. Tickets for the funicular is not expensive.
