  • 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.

  • 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.

  • According to Hindu Religion it is also 5 star or grater than 5. If you want to see river ganga you can go there. Mansa Devi have an accreditation here any who pray for god by heart and want something it will be fulfill by god.

  • Goddess of snakes, Mansa Devi temple situated on the hill top. The journey to this Temple was a bit tough and thrilling as well. Now they have ropeways to move up and down the mountain. Nice temple.

  • Situated nearby Haridwar! will let you walk a little climb- easy though. Cool breeze can be experienced! amazing view from the top!! You can also have an experience of ropeway ride!!
