Haridwar Chandi Devi Temple and ropeway Timings:7:00 AM to 7:00 PM
Chandi Devi Temple is situated on the top of Neel Parvat on the other bank of river Ganga at Haridwar in Uttar Pradesh. It was built in the year 1929 AD by Suchat Singh, the King of Kashmir. As per legend, Goddess Chandi killed Chanda-Munda, the army chief of the local demon king Shumbha-Nishumbha, at this place and hence the place got the name Chandi Devi. Now we can reach Chandi Devi Temple by a ropeway also, which starts near Gauri Shanker Temple.
Chandidevi temple is considered to be one of the popular Shaktipeethas in North India. It is called Siddhapitha because it is the general belief that the Goddess Chandi accomplishes the wishes of her devotees. The temple can be accessed by the ropeway in around 5 minutes whereas the steep climb through steps will take more than 45 minutes. It is said that the main deity at Chandi devi temple was installed by Adi Shankaracharya in 8th century A.D.
