About Chandi Devi Temple

Chandi Devi Temple is a Hindu shrine dedicated to Goddess Chandi Devi in the heavenly city of Haridwar. Set on the Neel Parvat of the Shivalik Hills, the religious site was constructed by Suchat Singh in 1929 during his rule as the King of Kashmir. However, the idol of Chandi Devi at the temple is said to have been founded in the eighth century by Adi Shankaracharya, one of the top priest of Hindu religion. The temple also acknowledged as Neel Parvat Teerth is one of the Panch Tirth of Haridwar and part of three Sindh Peethas of Haridwar. This ancient temple can only be reached through a 3 km trek or a recently introduced cable rope. The temple is located in between the dense forest, and the ropeway offers scenic views of the Ganges River and Haridwar.

Historical Context: According to the legend, the devil lords Shumbha and Nishumbha had caught the kingdom of the gods. After earnest prayers by the gods, Parvati transformed into Chandi, an outstandingly attractive lady and stunned by her magnificence; Shumbha desired to wed her. On being refused, Shumbha sent his minister Chanda and Munda to kill her and were executed by goddess Chamunda. Shumbha and Nishumbha then went to kill Chandika, however, were rather killed by the goddess. From that point, Chandika is said to have rested for a brief timeframe at the highest point of Neel Parvat and later a temple was constructed here to affirm the legend. Additionally, the two tips situated in the mountain extent are called Shumbha and Nishumbha
