With a glorious idol of goddess Chandi dating back to the 8th century, this legendary temple in Haridwar was redeveloped by Suchat Singh- the King of Kashmir in the early 20th century. One of the prominent temples of Haridwar, this temple is on a hill top of the Neel Parvat and is ideal for a hike from the main city.

One can take cable car or trek to temple, if one has sufficient time, it is advised to trek as the view one gets is extremely scenic. Else one has to go for cable car, but there could be waiting time, we were lucky to go in the morning and waiting time was just 10 min, but it could turn into hours... so plan accordingly....
Crowded, ticket is 80 rs per person. Will need minimum 2 hrs. Cable car ride is awesome. Good views. Couple of restaurants on top. Overall well managed
Awesome place... If you go here by Rope Way..... You find surprising beauty of nature.... Scenery from heights give you very nice view of the holy river ganga..... Just beware of monkeys here..... They may snatch any thing you have, weather it is useful to them or not....
A good place to visit,located at top of the hill,pleasant view,everywhere you see is greenary..if you want to enjoy nature and landscape than don't use ropeway come up doing trekking.. feels soothing at the top,relaxing..visit in early morning advised don't visit in night as wildlife starts roaming around here
I am giving this review so that others can get help on Google Maps and there is convenience to anyone visiting anywhere. This is the right place and you can come here and see.
