Very sacred temple where people pray. Many visitors daily. A nice ride on the chairlift to get to the temple with views of Haridwar and the surrounding area

Crowd management at Mansa Devi temple is abysmal. Please don't venture during festival season. It's a kind of survival of the fittest to enter and exit the temple.

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

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
