Shakti Peeth Shakumbari Overview

Ranked 1 of 5 sightseeing in Saharanpur

The Shakti Peeth of Shakumbari is situated 40 km north of Saharanpur and is dedicated to the Shakumbari Devi. The history of this temple is not very clear as its architecture and images do not give any evidence regarding the period to which this temple belongs. According to some  stories, the idols present at this temple were installed here, by Adi Sankracharya, while performing his tapasya in the place.

The stories regarding Devi Shakumbari state that Devi performed tapas for 100 years, in which,  she used to have only a vegetarian meal, once at the end of every month. It is also that she killed Mahishasur Maha Daitya, in this very place. One of the significant features of this temple is the Shakumbari Mela, which is organised at this temple, every year, on the occasion of Navratri. It also has a nearby temple of Bhura Dev, known as the Bhairav Temple, who is said to have been the guard of Shakumbari Devi. It is also mandatory to visit this temple before visiting the Shakumbari Temple.

A beautiful religious place

Awesome religious place everyone should visit. Full paisa vasool a little heat but it's worth it. Everyone should keep their water bottle with them because there is too much heat. Travellers try the Bungee Jhula there it's awesome and visit all the ancient temples. Trust me you won't regret it.
