Worth visiting. Situated on the top of a 540 m hill, it is easily reachable through trolley services, but one would prefer to walk up the hill. Start around 5:00 pm, spend some time in the Mandir and while you are on your way back down, you'll see an alluring beautiful city lighted up, shining ,in your own eyes.
Divinity missing. Temple interior looks like a commercial complex. Shops inside temples spoil the divine atmosphere. Cable car ride was amazing.
Temple is situated on a top of hill, good hangout for families and friends. Soothing air makes you relax and timings are a issue, best to visit temple during day time. The view are really mesmerizing and amazing. Hope you enjoy. I did
Must visit once by foot on stairs so that you can fell your divinity. Must go through the rope which is very grateful.
It's very Divine place. Your all wishes comes true when you come here with pure heart. It's situated on the hill. and the view of haridwar from this hill is so amazing. I can't express in the word. You must visit here if you ever comes in the haridwar.
