We were going to Gupt Kashi and enroute we saw this huge crowd and a long line of cars. The driver told us it is the deity that protects the four Dhams. The top portion of the mata (mother) is here and the bottom is supposed to be in another place, I forget.
On the way back we stopped by. It was extremely hot and as we entered we saw that we had to go down and then walk a king way in the river to go to the temple. As one of us had sprained the ankle we were wondering if we could come back up.
Fortunately a local guide said he can take us in his car through the maintenance route as we had a disabled person. He had an old jeep and he said INR 809 for the whole drive and back or we wait to get 8 passengers. We took the whole vehicle and he took us down through a muddy road with a guarded gate. He waited till we finished our darshan.

We leave our footwear outside and walk in. If It’s pretty hot there are a few places where one has to walk on stones and it does burn the feet. Carpets provided at most places tk protect your feet.
The crowd is huge and plan an hour to visit the inside.
Leave leather belts at the gate. Tie them tk the gate and pick it up on the way back. No one steals or picks someone else’s belt !

Divine place. Not to be missed

Never seen anything like this before - a temple which the locals just swear by. They come here to worship Dhaari maa before every important event in their lives.

The best part that I liked was that the temple is located in middle if the river Ganga (Alaknanada)... you have to take a walkway to reach there. It was serene, beautiful and so exciting.

It has also become a starting pilgrim for all those who are doing the char-dham or Kedarnth Badrinath shrines as it falls just on the highway to Badri-Kedar, you don't even have to take a detour. Just park you car at the Dhaari entrance and go pay your visit.

There's also a nice beach below on the river bank where you can relax.

Dhari devi temple is on the highway itself. Park your car and quick walk down to reach this majestic temple. Built on top of the river Alkhnanda between Srinagar and Rudraprayag. Additionally, you spend quality time by the river side and enjoy the majestic views. The river was calm and quite peaceful. Try and reach in daylight to enhance your experience.

This temple is about 600 year old in now this is in river Alaknanda, earlier it was in front of river.The place is very cool and peaceful,the pandits are quite good they will not ask for money for any ritual if u perform but u are welcome there.beware of monkeys they snatch the prasad.From road it is almost 300 meter.and u can park ur vehicle easily.theain pandit ji is very good tell u everything about the temple.
The most important thing is that the goddess Dhari Devi changes its face three times a day.amazing place.must include in ur tour.its better if u ho to Rudraprayag and while coming back to khirsu u can have darshan.its about 15 km from khirsu and almost same from khirsu.jai mata di

Do visit this ancient temple of Dhari Devi which is supposed to be the protector of all the 4dhams in the Chardham circuit. The temple is located in the midst of the river Ganga & it's connection to the 2013 disaster makes it a highly recommended visit to every Chardham yatri.

Dhari Devi or Kali Maa Temple is on the way from Rudraprayag to Devaprayag on the Alaknanda river. There is a recorded history of this temple in Wikipedia, which adequately indicates the Power of the Goddess. So, I am not repeating the Story here.
Our Driver had showed this temple on our way to Rudraprayag and on our return, we visited the temple. This is a temple which requires good amount of climbing down to the Alaknanda River at the ground level (approx about 150 to 200 metres down) and also one should have good stamina to climb up. The climbing area is a flat surface on an elevated mode and not made by way of Steps, which makes it easier to get down and come up to the main Road, where the vehicles are parked. The temple structure is built well and it is a nice experience to go on top of the Alaknanda river thru a Bridge or Joola to the Temple. The temple itself is a small one with the Goddess inside. It is supposedly a powerful goddess and supposed to protect Char Dham. Jai Mata Di.

I prayed at Dhari Devi mandir standing in Alaknanda River in Kalyasaur village of Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand , on 10th March , 2020 . The temple houses the upper half of an idol of the goddess Dhari Devi . The idol's lower half is located in Kalimath where she is worshipped in Kali avatar . According to the priest , the appearance of goddess changes with time , from a girl to a woman and then to an old lady .
As per Srimad Devi Bhagwat , this shrine is one of 108 shakti pithas in India . Goddess Dhari Devi is the protector divinity of Uttarakhand . It is believed that Lord Shiva performed the tandav at this place . Dhari Devi is considered as the guardian and the protector of the Char Dhams in Uttarakhand .

As per a legend , it is believed that in the ancient time , the idol of Dhari Devi was washed off by floods and it banged against a rock . The villagers from nearby Dharo village heard the weeping of the idol . A divine voice then ordered the villagers to install the idol at the place where it was found and should be kept under the open sky . Thus the mandir was known as Dhari Devi mandir . Dhari Devi was aggressive looking .

A bridge on the Alaknanda River joins Dhari village with Dhari Devi temple .

Dhari Devi Mata Temple is currently moved to a platform in the mid of Water. It is believed that Dhari Devi is protecting the entire Kedar Ghati. The Idol of Dhari Devi is very nice and very live. It is also believed that while going to Kedarnath and Badrinath, one should take blessings of Dhari Devi and pray her for safe Char Dham Yatra. Jay Mata Di.
