Ranked 4 among Places to Visit in Panchkula
Time Required: 2-3 hrs
Mansa Devi Temple is nestled in the foothills of the Shivalik mountain range and is spread over an area of 100 acres bordering the village of Bilaspur, near Mani Majra, in the Panchkula district of Haryana. Mansa Devi Temple has maintained the sanctity of being an important shrine for worshipping Shakti (Mansa Devi), the divine feminine incarnation of the innate cosmic energy that is said to epitomize and rule the forces of the universe, in Hinduism and Shaktism. The main attraction of the temple is formed by a tree around which devotees tie sacred threads to get their prayers answered. Mansa Devi Temple is a highly revered attraction and is popular among devotees from all over India, especially during the Navratri - Nine Nights of Worship of the Goddess.
Set against a scenic backdrop and amidst some beautiful, lush green lawns, this temple is a must visit for peace lovers. Tourists consistently speak of the remarkably clean premises. The main temple can be accessed after climbing quite a few stairs. Voluntary free kitchens or 'bhandaras' operate within the shrine complex and provide free food to all pilgrims. The temple gathers huge crowds on auspicious days, especially during the Navaratra Melas. These fairs are a huge attraction twice a year for nine days. The Shrine Board makes elaborate arrangements for the comfortable stay and darshan of the devotees.
