“RELIGIOUS & PIOUS !!!!!!!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

In Himachal Pradesh the Tara Devi Temple is among most revered temples in Himachal Pradesh. It is situated on a hill top about 45 minutes drive from Shimla.The temple premises are neat and clean and everyday they serve the local cuisine free of cost to all as prasad. There are also nice walks around the area. The views from the top are just mind blowing. After visiting and seeking blessings of Goddess Tara Devi and enjoying the breathtaking views we left. A must visit for religious people.

“PILGRIMAGE AMONG CLOUDS”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

tara devi is a well known temple of shimla located at a higher altitude. The hilltop has got two temples of MATA TARADEVI and MATA DOODADHARI JI . It has got not only devotional and religious importance but the scenic beauty makes this place very lively. when you reach mata doodadhari temple located a few yards away from the main deity, clouds touch you and cool breeze welcomes you like the goddesses are showering their blessings on you. A must visit place.
