Mansa Devi Temple Overview

Ranked 2 of 77 sightseeing in Haridwar

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.

Devi temple on a hill

Manasa Devi temple is on a small hill called Bilva Parvat. It is about 8 kms from Haridwar and can be easily reached by a rope way . . Rope way operates continuously and one need not wait for a long time to go by rope way. Temple is always crowded. Temple is neatly maintained. Plenty of shops and hotels are available near the temple .

I think Haridwar is a best place 4 holiday.

Haridwar has very rich very old religious and cultural heritage. Sited inthe foothills of the Himalayas. Haridwar is a tourist hot-spot. One of them Is MANSA DEVI TEMPLE. It is located a top the Shivalik hills. Goddes Mansa Devi, wife of the Nag King Vasuki, is believed to complete the wishes of devotes visiting her Temple.

Jai Maa Mansa Devi

Maa mansa devi temple is located on a hill called Bilwa Parvat at a height of approx 550 feet, part of Shivalik ranges. There are two ways to reach temple, first is by walk which is preferred by many pilgrims, in fact the road up to the temple is in excellent conditions with many food stalls in between. If you are a nature lover, go for it as you will have number of views on the way to temple. Second and most convenient mode is ropeway which is famous among many. It is preferred for all age groups, especially kids and old age.

Daughter of Lord Shiva - The great temple

Travelled to this place with electric rope way, the cost is around Rs. 650/ per person and 4 ropeways are permitted in a year. The great temple and Goddess Manasa devi is the prime deity.

Rope way Ride to Mansa Devi Temple

I always make sure to visit Mansa Devi Temple whenever I visit Haridwar.This temple is situated in the heart of city on a hill. You can either go by walk or by the rope way to this holy temple.In case you are good in dealing with red faced Monkeys, you can choose to go by walk to this temple. These monkeys don't bother to attack on your bags in search of prasad. So be careful and take care of your belongings.I usually prefer to go by rope way because the experience of seeing the aerial view of the holy city of Haridwar is amazing. You can also reach the temple in 3-4 minutes.I always prefer to first complete the darshan and then hop on various shops out there where you can get Pooja stuff.

Good for religious people

It is good place to visit for religious people who believe in statue worship. I reached with my old mother. The temple is situated at top of a mountain. You can reach by foot or by ropeway. There are many statues. Ever step of you there is a statue and panditji will ask you to donate some money for maata and take blessings of goddess.

Divine place

No one can praise the divine power to justify its worth. The name Mansa Devi is to reflect that the Maa gives what our 'Mann' says i. e. She fulfills all our desires. We get the same divine feelings once we enter the holy place.The journey itself is very beautiful. We have options of going to temple via UDAN KHATOLA or by foot. We have some elderly peoples and some children with us. So we decided to let some of us go via Ropeway and some decided to walk to the temple. The walk was filled with fun and devotion. Luckily the weather was also good so we just chatted and praise our goddess. When we reached in the maa darbaar, we were filled with utmost devotion. After seeking blessings of Mansa Devi and other Gods, we enjoyed some snacks. Again we started our journey back to our next destination but we were filled with some sort of completeness and devotion. Jai Mata Ji!!
