Well Know for fulfilling wishes

This temple is up on hill and we goes by rope way. This known as Manasa Devi, means your wishes will be fullfilled. Its known for this. Visit in morning will be good.

Divine place. You can climb up the hill thru a well over pathway or use the Rope Car. Well maintained and attended service at Rope Car. Small temple. Had good darshan. What I don't appreciate is the local priest just look for the money not true to service. You be on your own and pray there. Worth a visit.

but taking cable car is a torturous route. I think we can maintain the temple premises in a better way. too much commercialization

The best way to reach temple is by rope way. The temple is always full of crowd. The crowd management needs improvement .

A long queue which moves so fast in a disciplined manner to help pilgrims visit the shrine of Maa Manasa Devi. Aarti and rituals, felt blessed after Darshan. Next was the most awaited rope way ride. It was joyful. The view was awesome. It's a must while in Haridwar. I feel lucky I could visit and enjoy the ride to... More

This is temple associated with the legend of Sarpa yagna of Janamejaya. you can take steps or rope way to reach the temple top. The temple is located on the Bilwa parvat. you can get a splendid view of Haridwar and its ghats from the top of the hill.

temple accessed both by walking path and gondola. long lines given festive occasion. high level of security presence noticed. too short time for prayers and reflection as lines have to keep moving. quite memorable visit and a must for those visiting this city for the first time.

Take a combo ticket and travel by cable car. The view from the cable car is very good. Watchout for the monkeys and do not carry any eatable outside. You need to do this as 1st thing in the morning before the mad rush arrives. There is shuttle bus service between Masa Devi and Chandi Devi temple.
