The Mansa Devi temple is built in the foothills of the Shivalik Range in the Village of Bilaspur in the Panchkula District of Haryana. It was built during 1811-1815 by Sh. Karam Singh, the then Maharaja of Patiala.
Two temples are located in the Mansa Devi complex and are mainly worshipped in their ‘pindi’ or pebble form. The Mansa Devi in the main sanctorum is worshipped along with Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati. The other form of worship is anthropomorphic form on marble. Earlier only the pindis were worshipped by the pilgrims but in recent times a beautiful marble idol is established with ornaments and crown.
The surprising fact is that unlike other Shivalik Temples that follow the Nagara Style of architecture with spiral designs, this temple follows a very traditional Mughal Style of architecture with beautiful domes and minarets. This type of design is also called the Panchayatana design with four minarets with domes at four sides and the main temple with the big dome at the center which forms the fifth.
The Mansa Devi Temple is not only a pilgrimage place but also an example of the fine traditional art style of that era. The murals and paintings are stunning. This not only depicts that of Mansa Devi but includes scenes from Ramayana, paintings of Goddess Durga, Lord Shiva, Navaratnas, Nakshatras and Lord Krishna as well.

Mansa Mata temple is so beautiful and full of divine atmosphere. The whole complex is so huge and well planned. Very spacious inside the temple and also outside. The entry and exit are separate so no trouble for devotees. Mansa Mata fills positivity in all who came, the light of hope she blessed everyone with. Many people tie the knot of their wishes to be complete, later they untie it when they visit again after completion. This has spiritual boon over here for those who who came with hope, believe and positivity. Jai Mata Di..
