Bhima Devi Temple, Pinjore

#6 of 9 in Historic Sites in Panchkula District

The temple, located in Pinjore, is dated from archeological excavations as an ancient historical and religious place. Archeological excavations have revealed that this region, extending from Pinjore to Nalagarh, establishes earliest habitation by man to 1.5 million years ago. This is based on tools of Paleolithic period found in quartzite formations in the region.

Also, from the rock edicts found from the temple ruins in the area during excavations, it has been conjectured that they were constructed during the reign of Raja Ram Dev.

But Muslim invasions from 13th century onwards resulted in repeated destruction of the temple complex. The first act of depredation was carried out by Nasir-u-Din Mahmood, son of Iltutmish of the Slave Dynasty rule (1206-1290 AD) in the year 1254 A.D. Timurlane who invaded India in 1399 AD destroyed the temples further. This was followed by Chengiz Khan’s destruction in 1507 A.D. The final total destruction was effected in 1661 by Fidai Khan, the then Governor of Sirhind who razed this temple and built the Pinjore gardens.

  • Different experience of old khajuraho stones sculptures found in digging ... an historical monument ... peaceful neat and clean garden ... back gate doesn’t have car parking ... one has to enter Yadavendra garden car parking to reach to temple ....
  • It comprise broken pillars, statuettes and friezes (including some Khajuraho-esque erotic carvings) scattered around a pleasant shaded garden. The temple is thought to have been torn down when the Pinjore Gardens were originally constructed. To get here, turn left as you exit Pinjore Gardens and walk past the water park.
