About Tripura Sundri Temple

Tripura Sundari Temple is a temple that is of immense historical importance in Himachal. Raja Yashodhapal created the temple in a three storey pagoda style structure, established near Naggar bus stand. The temple is a massive wooden structure inspired by the Hadimba Devi Temple in Manali. Goddess Tripura is the guardian deity or the ‘Ishta Devi’ of Naggar. People have faith that the Goddess will always protect the people of the region from any harms- inner or outer. It is said that the region that Naggar Village in Kullu valley was inhabited at Divine Will of the Goddess itself. The temple contains a small idol of demon Tripura. There are also stone idols of Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, Lord Ganesha, Goddess Lakshmi, and Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati in the temple. A fair is organized each year in the month of May in the honor of Tripura Devi. On the first day of Baisakh during the Festival of Birsu, the temple receives shrouds of dead bodies as clothes to the Goddess.

Historical Context: Legend states that God Shiva and Goddess Parvati decided to stay in Manikaran for some time during which a jewel (mani) from Parvati’s earring fell into the river. When all attempts to locate the mani failed, Lord Shiva raging with anger opened his third eye. Shesh Naag (Serpent God) was approached by other gods to control Lord Shiva’s anger. The Serpent God hissed and hot water started oozing from the place where the mani had fallen which brought out numerous jewels. It is said the Serpent God had created the hot springs in the river at that time.
