Mansa Devi Temple is located at a distance of 2.5 km from the main township of Haridwar. Located atop the Bilwa Parvat on Shivalik Hills, Mansa Devi is one of the most visited temples in North India. The temple is known for being the home of Goddess Mansa, who was the wife of Nag Vasuki and also the brainchild of Saint Kashyap.

This temple has two idols of the presiding deity, one with three mouths and five arms and the other with eight arms. One of the major Siddh peethas in India, this temple is the apex of Siddh peetha triangle, which is formed by the trio of Mansa Devi, Maya Devi and Chandi Devi.

One of the famous rituals performed by the devotees visiting the temple is to tie holy threads to the sacred tree, which is believed to fulfil wishes of devotees. Once the wishes are fulfilled, devotees need to untie the holy thread.

Apart from being a holy shrine, the temple is also a famous tourist destination. This is because of the cable cars, which are popularly known as 'Devi Udankhatola'. The cable car carries tourists from the lower station up to the temple. The ropeway, which is used by the cable cars, is located at a height of 178 m from the ground.

You will love the ropeway journey to and from Mansa Devi. The scenic beauty from the ropeway is irresistible. You can see half the Haridwar town from top.

"A must visit temple in Haridwar" new review

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Mansa Devi temple in Haridwar is amongst one of the very old temples in Haridwar and you should specially visit this temple whenever you visit Haridwar. We can say that the trip of Haridwar is not to be completed if you haven't visited this temple, it is said that if you make a wish about anything there and tie a knot to a place in the temple then the wish is fulfilled, many people believe that. Its a nice place and in parallel to it you will also have a trekking experience to visit the temple if you want to. There are trolleys available to, but the scenery is worth seeing and even the temple is beautiful.

One can visit the temple of Mansa Devi on the Uthan Khatola. One can reach the temple on the top of the hills in 10 minutes on the Uthan Khadola. It is to good to visit the temple and enjoy ride of Uthan Khatola.

The best place to visit. I visited this temple for the first time. The temple has its own beauty and design. The temple has a very strong religious belief.

"A tiresome experience in the ropeway"

  • 3.50/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Liked: It's a temple so there always is a religious attachment. Ropeway to the temple is a nice but tiresome experience.

Disliked: the ropeway to the temple is so crowded that it will easily take you couple of hours to reach the hilltop. I hate it when the temple is so enclosed in construction that one can't even have a view of the nature outside. I believe that for a temple on top of a hill, the awe of nature (eg. Ganga flowing beneath) itself is a part of the feeling of being connected to God.

If there was enough time, I would have liked to climb the hill on-foot rather than take the rope-way.

It was worth travelling at this place. The facility provided at this temple for the lift was very much more than perfect. There was a proper queue system.

"Outstanding ropeway Journey to the temple"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Apr 28, 2015
Manasha devi temple is situated on top of a hill. Devotees can either choose Ropeway or roadway to the temple. Ropeway journey is of course preferred. The view from the rope way is excellent. Beware of monkeys in the temple premises. Keep your valuables inside your bags.
