Mansa Devi Temple, Haridwar Reviews
Its a very nice place. Here you can see God. And you feel something different in the temple. Really its a very good place for moving with Friends and family ... My
Nice temple but this place is dominated by priests activities. They consume intoxicated products like Pan or tobacco even in mandir. So many small Temples are also present over there. Decrease the dignity of sacred temples.
Very good Hindu temple. You can come via Rope car only after 8 AM which will charge you 65 rupees person for one way. You can use stairs as well If you want to come before first pray (Aarti) in temple. From here you can see some very good natural views. If you'll use road to come down from temple you will see many beautiful natural views as well. Don't use stairs use road to return.
At some point this may have been a spiritual place but now it is mostly a tourist spot with the ride on the ropeway being the main attraction. Both times that I visited the priests in the temple were not only rude but also tried extorting money.
If you want to visit the temple, make it a whole day affair because of the huge rush that can be found here. If you go to the temple at around 12 the n there will be around 2 hour waiting for the cable car ride. Better go there early in the morning at 8. People go by jeep as well but equal amount of rush. Many people go back without visiting thinking they will visit in an hour.
