Though a long walk to the end of the Mall road but worth the effort.
Never seen such form of Kali anywhere. Will refresh your soul.

The Kali Bari temple is one of the ancient temples in Shimla built in 1845. It is dedicated to the fearsome reincarnation of Goddess Kali also known as Shyamala. The Goddess is believed to have existed near Jakhoo. The shrine of the blue Goddess existed near Rotheny Castle on Jakhoo before it was shifted to a place, known as Kali Bari near Mall Road which is the current location.

In the temple, a wooden image of the Goddess Kali in the form of Shyamala is worshipped. The original altar at the shrine was established by the Bengali devotees.

Goddess Kali is also worshipped in the forms like Bhavani, Bhadrakali, Chamunda, Durga, Kumari Sati, Kamakhya, Meenakshi, Parvati,Tara and Uma at the shrine.

It is a very popular shrine in Shimla and receives many devotees on the auspicious occasion of Navratri and Durga Puja. Located in close vicinity to the Shimla city mall, the temple can be reached by foot.

This iconic Kali Mata temple is one of the major attractions of Shimla. The best time to visit the temple is in the morning between 10-12. Beware of monkeys though!

The temple is near to mall road and dedicated to Goddess kali who is also named as Shyamala, and the city got its name after the goddess as Shimla. The temple is an important worshiped place in the city and also very important tourist place. The temple was built in 1845. Highly recommended place to visit.
