HolidayIQ Reviewer Abinash Sahu shares, “The ticket charge is very nominal. The temple should be visited in the mornings or evenings during summer and it can be visited anytime during the day in winter. There is a small park in the vicinity of the temple. Local guides are available there with excellent knowledge about the temple - they can brief you in Hindi, English, Oriya, and Bengali as well. Although it is a temple, no prayers are offered here and no worship is done here because this temple is not considered a holy place based on some historical reasons. So you can enter the temple premises wearing your shoes and slippers. Cameras are allowed here, so you can click a lot of pictures, especially with the Ashok Chakra in the background.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Manoj Saini says, “The temple is by far the richest temple in the world, having tons of gems and gold in its vaults. People who can prove they are Hindus can enter the temple. One has to be careful about their dress code otherwise you cannot enter the temple. The dress code for men is dhoti with or without Angavastra. The dress code for women is saris, dhotis or pavadas with a blouse or other coverings appropriate to their age. Salwar sets and other modern dresses are not allowed. One can buy dhotis in the shop adjacent to the temple. Once inside the temple, you will be astonished by the cut stonework.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Abhijit Sarkar shares, “One of the most ancient temples with many myths attached to it, it is everyone's favorite because it of God Nand Lal who came to this side of the Indian soil from Mathura and developed a palace of Gold. The original glitter is untraceable but the beliefs have been left behind in this temple. The temple areas are, as usual, full of markets. The outdoor/courtyard area is quite clean with locker facilities/toilet facilities. They don’t charge you for entry or any of the facilities but donations are accepted. No mobiles/cameras/big bags allowed, once inside. You can take a guide inside the temple for a nominal fee. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Himanshu Bahukhandi says, “Chandi Devi temple is said to be one of the most spiritual places in Haridwar and I have visited it many times. Chandi Devi temple is the place where you can find the true spirituality of Haridwar and there is a saying that one simply must visit Chandi Devi temple if one is visiting Haridwar. This is the place where you can truly devote your time to Chandi Devi and it is said that if you make a wish there, then the wish is fulfilled by Chandi Devi. I am not just saying it but it's the thing the people talk about here in Haridwar. So it's your time to just experience the spirituality and peace of Haridwar. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Pramod Tiwari adds, “Somnath Shiva temple is in the coastal city of Veraval city. It is well-connected by road from all the major cities of Gujarat. The outside premises of the temple are not very clean but inside, the temple is beautiful and calm. The divine aura of Shiva is clearly felt. The best time to visit it is in the mornings during sunrise. Free lockers for shoes and belongings are available outside temple. No belts, no money, purses, and mobiles are allowed inside. It's one of 12 Jyotirlingas of Shiva. The restaurants here are average. Washrooms are not available. No ticket is required. Sunset and sunrise are good. Just outside the temple, a bus station is available.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Prabal Awasthi adds, “There we stayed in Hotel Maa Vaishno. After resting, we started our journey to the temple. We got a pass from the shrine board office at Katra Bus Stand. From the hotel, we took a taxi to Baan Ganga which is the starting point of the journey. The clean Baan Ganga River flows here and on the bank of the river is the temple of Maa erected by late Gulshan Kumar. The yatra from Baan Ganga to Ardh Kumari is 6 km long and steep, so it's better to choose a pony or Palki as means of a carrier. After this is the darshan of Garbh Joon (a hole in rock) through which you have to pass to get a darshan in the temple built there. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Hemant Shekhar Rathore adds, “Most people visit Haridwar to take a dip in the holy Ganga River, particularly in Har Ki Pauri area. The dip in itself has a calming influence on you. In the evening there is a Ganga Aarti by various priests, which in itself is a different experience. The chanting of mantra, the reflection of Aarti in the Ganga, and the crowd provides you the experience of a lifetime. People also go to Haridwar for visiting Mansa Devi and Chandi Devi temple. Both are situated on the hilltop and one can go there by walking the hilly terrain or by ropeway facility. I had the pleasure of experiencing both on two different occasions.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq shares, “Though it was famous for its tunnels, Bhim Burj is more famous for the large cannon Garbh Gunjam. On the highest point of Taragarh Fort stands the Dargah of Hazrat Miran Syed Hussain Asghar Khangsar who was the governor of Ajmer after its conquest by Sultan Shahabuddin Ghori. On the death of Qutubuddin Aibak in 1210 A.D., the Rathor and Chauhan Rajputs joined in a night attack on the Taragarh and massacred Miran Saheb and his garrison. From the top of the hill, you find a beautiful and heart touching view of the whole city of Ajmer. And now, many tourists come to the Holy Shrine Of Miran Saheb, at Star Fort. ” Read Full Review
