Mansa Devi Temple Overview

Ranked 3 of 43 sightseeing in Panchkula

Mansa Devi Temple, located on the foothills of Shivalik Range, is an epitome of age old tradition of ‘Shakti’ worship in northern India. Symbol of Himalayan culture and faith, the temple is dedicated to goddess Mansa Devi, a form of Shakti. About 200 years old, the temple complex contains two temples. Out of the two temples, main temple is dedicated to Mansa.

Mansa is worshipped in the sanctum sanctorum both in the form of ‘pindi’ as well as in her anthropomorphic form executed on a marble. In the form of Pindi (Stone pebbles) of the sanctum sanctorum, the goddess is worshipped with Devi Saraswati and Lakshmi. Deity of the temple is beautifully adorned with crown and other ornaments. Main temple manifests a typical Mughal architecture, which is represented by domes and minarets.

Panchayatana pattern represents the architecture of the temple. Architecturally, the main shrine (Fifth shrine) that is located in the centre is surrounded at the four cardinal corners by four shrines. Every shrine depicts four minarets at four corners with a cupola on its top. Onion shaped, the domes stand on an elongated circulator drum. Miniature vaulted alcoves are present on the facade of the temple.

Main temple of Shri Mansa Devi was constructed by Maharaja Gopal Singh of Manimajra between 1811 and 1815.  At proximity to this temple lies the Patiala Temple. Constructed by Shri Karam Singh, the then Maharaja of Patiala, this temple dates back to 1840. One of the prominent Shakti temples of North India, temple of Shri Mansa Devi had the patronage of Manimajra State. After the merger of princely states with Pepsu the Patronage of State Government ended.

In the temple, Navratri festival is celebrated for all the nine days. During Chaitra and Ashvin months, Shardiya Navratra Mela is organised at the shrine complex. Two Navratra Melas are organised in the shrine every year. The two periods include month of Ashvin and the month of Chaitra, Spring Navratri.

Nice Devi Temple

Great place for peace of mind

I have visited this fantastic temple several times in life. Everytime I visit here the crowd is unbelievable the lines are so long that it takes almost 2-3 hours to get inside the temple. The temple from inside is beautiful. It's a strong advice not to visit on holiday or weekends as on this day the line goes beyond imagination, prefer a working day rather than a holiday and don't even think about visiting in navratras as it will take whole day to get in temple. A verified tourist.

Popular temple among tourists

Mansa Devi has a very steady set of devotees who come here once every year. It is on top of a hill therefore you can either take a cable car or a stair path to go up the temple. There is a whole market at the foot of the hill where you can find several shops which sells only the Prasad for the temple. People have very strong religious sentiments associated with this place. It is also considered as one of the shakti peeths. This is a must visit place in Panchkula, even if you are not religious do visit this place just see the faith of the people.
