Admire the peaks of the Greater Himalayas from Kunjapuri Devi Temple, one of the two famous Hindu temples in the Rishikesh area. Dedicated to the goddess Durga, the temple is believed to be the place where the chest of the self-immolated Shakti’s burned Sati fell. Perched on a hillock at 1,676 m (5,499 ft) above sea level, the temple has a large observation platform offering sweeping views over the snow-capped peaks of Swarga Rohini, Gangotri, Banderpunch, and Chaukhamba, as well as green terraced fields below. Leave an offering or feed numerous snow monkeys, who come here regularly to feed. Put Kunjapuri Devi Temple and other Rishikesh attractions into our Rishikesh trip itinerary planning site , and watch your holiday take shape.
Kunjapuri Devi Temple Reviews
I believe this was my 10th visit but every time I find myself rejuvenate visiting this place. The place is not so known to everyone and believe me I don't want this to pay the cost of excessive visits... more »
Very beautiful place with great view from top. weather was pleasant. Stepping on this mountain temple, seems like stepping out of the world. We visited in late evening. The moon & sky seems so lovely.... more »
Best place i have ever been. Watching sunrise here while listening to the chirping of the birds is simply phenomenal. I felt at peace every time i have been here.
Himalayas view from the mandir is best. Must do the trekking to enjoy fullest... 5km trek.. tiring but amazing. Go on road trip to enjoy the view at fullest.. view throughout your way is amazing. Best time to visit is rainy season as you will find amazing view.
