  • If you are in haridwar you must come here very nice place with nice environment there place to kids. You can take bath here.
  • It is said that, this is the place where SATI, first wife of Shiv self-immolated her body to protest against Prajapathi Daksh insulting Lord Shiva. In past, this Ghaat (platform on Ganga) was also used for Asthi Visarjan, Ganga Pujan and Sanan. Now a days, its only used for Arti and Ganga Pujan.
  • Management not good. No arrangements for shoe reck, only 1 prasad install in mandir.
  • Jai Durga Maa
  • This temple is situated at the bank of river ganga called as Kushavrat ghat and also is origin of all the 51 Shaktipeeths, after arguement with his father King Daksha related to disrespect of his husband Shiva, Parvati jumped into the yagna kund at this place. This is only temple in the world where Mahalaxmi and ShivJi both are existed at one place. In the month of shravan Shivji comes to his inlaws home and take rest as per promise given to his mother in law. Daily evening aarti and shringar of shivling is worth watchable.
