Chandi Devi Temple, located on the top of Neel Parvat, is one of the most famous temples of India. This place is of great religious importance and is also considered as one of the Shakti peethas of North India. This temple is also known as Siddh peetha, as it is believed to have powers to fulfil the wishes of devotees.

According to legend, it is believed that Goddess Chandika Devi rested for a short while on Neel Parvat. This happened after she killed demon kings, Shumbh and Nishumbha. This temple was constructed to welcome her back.

Chandi Devi Temple was constructed in 1929 by Suchat Singh, who was the reigning king of Kashmir. However, it was believed that the idol present in the temple was installed in 8th century, by Adi Shankaracharya.

Tourists travelling to this temple can hire an auto-rickshaw, cycle rickshaw, tongas or taxis, from any part of Haridwar. In addition, travellers can also opt for trekking-route, which is around 3 km from Chandighat. Another mode of transportation available for reaching the temple is through the cable car. It takes duration of around 20 to 25 minutes so as to reach the holy shrine.

Religious place, you can see the Devi by taking the robe car. You have to visit this temple during day time only. When you are going by robe car you can view the Haridwar city very nicely.

This temple is around 3-4 km from Manasa Devi temple. There is rope-way of 750m to go up to the temple. View of Ganga river while in trolley is very good. Must visit temple of Haridwar. There is a restaurant from where ropeway starts. Food available there is really good.
