As the stories go, a demon once harassed various deities at this temple until the goddess Mookambika killed him and restored peace.

    Serene place. If visiting with parents best to take train as far as possible and then bus. The ghat roads to this place are narrow and there are no double axle buses plying to this place. If you have patience wait till noon during weekdays and enjoy temple food for free.

    Heavenly atmosphere fully charged with divinity. The presence of the Mother can be felt all over. No words to describe the feeling inside the temple. Must-visit shrine for every devotee of the Mother.

    The temple is really beautiful. You should reach early in the morning as the queues can get really long. Best time to go is during December. Otherwise it gets really hot and sunny in the summer
