Khir Bhawani Temple, Srinagar

4.4
Stop at Khir Bhawani Temple, built on a spring that symbolizes the goddess of its namesake (folklore maintains that the waters turn black if the region is to suffer any disasters). Kashmiri Brahmans gather here in May or June for an annual festival. Otherwise, it remains pleasantly untouristed. Soak up the peaceful atmosphere at the ancient place of worship surrounded by lush chinar trees. You can eat inexpensively on site.

  • Jai Jai maa
  • I had passed through this place numerous times, while I was serving Indian army in 1997-98,unfortunately after that I never had any chance to visit this holy site... God willing one day.. 1997-98,this whole area was heavily infested with militancy so very few people visited it
  • During my service I stationed here for four days, for election duties. We offered one vessel Kheer made by pure fresh milk.
  • Temple with a sacred spring in the name of hindu goddess Kheer Bhavani.
  • Kheer Bhawani is a temple dedicated to the Goddess Kheer Bhawani (originally just Bhawani) constructed over a sacred spring. The worship of Kheer Bhawani is universal among the Hindus of Kashmir. The temple is situated at a distance of 14 miles east of Srinagar near the village of Tul Mul. The term kheer refers to rice pudding that is offered in the spring to propitiate the Goddess, which became part of the name of the temple. As is the custom with Hindu deities, she has many names: Maharagya Devi, Ragnya Devi, Rajni, Ragnya Bhagwati, and so on.
