About Jawalamukhi Devi Temple

The famous Jawalamukhi Devi Temple of the “Flaming Goddess” is located nearly 56 km from Dharmashala. The goddess is also named as the “She of the flaming mouth” and the temple is in the valley of Beas, which is built over some natural jets of combustible gas. Many people believe that the gas jets are the manifestation of Goddess Jawalamukhi. The legend says that these flames originate from the mouth of a demon named Jalandhara, a Daitya King whom Lord Shiva buried under the mountains. The dome of this beautiful temple is made with gold, gilt, and pinnacles and the door is made of silver plates by Sikh Raja Kharak Singh. This is a famous pilgrimage spot now and beautiful songs by praising the goddess are sung by the women who are here to thank Devi for fulfilling their wishes. There is no solid idol of any kind here in the temple, and the flaming fissures are considered as the fiery mouth of Goddess Jawalamukhi.
