Mansa Devi Temple

Manasa Devi Temple seems to have a significant space among the minds of the devotees of Shakti, the goddess this temple is dedicated to. Perched on the top of Bilwa Parvat on the Sivalik Hills, the temple offers a splendid view of the mighty Ganges and the holy city of Haridwar. Rather than being a pilgrim centre, the temple makes its value higher among the adventure seekers as well because, the temple is accessible either only by trekking the high altitude or taking the recently established rope way. Chandi Devi Temple located very close to this shrine attracts a large number of devotees everyday as there is a belief that the two forms of Goddess Parvati, Mansa and Chandi stay close to each other.

Yamunotri

Being the source of the River Yamuna, Yamunotri has a lot of significance in history as well. It is situated at a height of 3293 meters. Yamunotri is considered to be the supreme among the four sites of India’s Chhota Char Dham pilgrimage. The temple dedicated to Goddess Yamuna is the prime attraction here along with the charming holy thermal springs at Janki Chatti. It was constructed by Maharaja Pratap Shah of Tehri Garhwal. The whole location arranges the best features such as lush green meadows, glacier sights and revamping climate throughout the year. But majorly, the difficulty to reach the top extends a thrilling experience to those who love adventure and escapades. You can reach the location by walking through the rugged plains and roads, 6 KM from Hanuman Chatti and 4 KM from Janki Chatti.
