Jwalaji - the eternal flame!

While returning from a business trip to Hamirpur, we visited the famous Jwalaji Temple at Jwalamukhi. We had left Hamirpur by 7. 00 AM to avoid rush at the temple. After about a 45-minute drive and a short walk of 15 minutes, little steep at places, we reached the temple precincts. As the Navratra festival was in full fervour, many devotees thronged the temple. While the crowd management was quite orderly, we had to stand in the serpentine queue for more than an hour to enter the sanctum sanctorum.

The ancient shrine of Jwalaji, which finds its mention in the times of Mahabharata is one among 51 Peethas, where body parts of Sati had fallen. Sati's tongue is believed to have fallen at Jwalamukhi. The temple stands squat on a hill with an expansive courtyard with a good view of the valley all around. There was no idol in the temple; all we could see was a flame in a shallow sump at the centre of the temple. The fire should be due to flaring of natural gas oozing out of crevices in the rock. But its eternity since time immemorial fills one with the awe.

Jwalaji is very popular among the locals, Hindu and Sikh pilgrims visiting from nearby Punjab. The temple with a simple architecture does have an aura, which invites one to its folds time and again.

For travellers, who would like to stay back at Jwalamukhi, Himachal Tourism runs a well appointed tourist lodge at a stones throw from the shrine.

Holy place Jawalamukhi

It is a beautiful place. About 3 hours journey from UNA railway station. Hotels are not expensive. Food is good. Temple is located on a hill but don't need to travel a lot. Close-by there are several shops for purchasing goods. Weather is pleasant but summers are hot. A good place to go out with family.
