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.

"Outstanding ropeway Journey to the temple"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
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.

"Beautiful temple at the mountain"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
A beautiful temple to visit at Haridwar situated on the hill top with lots of greenery. We visited on foot at the temple as there was 1. 30 hrs waiting for Udan Khatola. It was adventurous as there were several monkeys on the hills. But lots of beggars irritating during Chadai.

The temple can be reached by cable car that is named UDAN KHATOLA. There is a package available for the round trip and another package that includes transporting to Maa Chandi Devi temple. A magnificent view of the Ganga River can be seen from the cable car.

"Better reach the temple through trekking"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Aug 19, 2014
It is on the hill, although there is rope way available but I suggest to go by taking the trekking experience. You will find monkeys in the way; they will not disturb you but yes, will get the food item from you if you are having it. Also, you will have lots of picturesque view.
