Mythological place

Very famous and divine place according to Hindu mythology. Place where hindu Goddess Durga Maa resides. Temple premises is too old and one can feel so relaxed. In April, temple community organises a festival (mela) which is the best time to visit. One of the important places for Hindu followers as well as archeologists!!!

The road is not good, good during Mela times

This temple is good in fact best place in Rudrapur to visit, but nowadays the streets are not as good as there is a lot of mud due to rain, but the best time is to visit during Mela Times.
