  • It was a great experience to visit Tara devi temple. And have food in bhandara. It is very tasty
  • Awesome Location and atmosphere. You need a good driver here.
  • Temple is a traditional architecture of Himachal Pradesh. Spiritual. Stunning view of hills and Shimla.
  • Relax your mind in a religious way as we hardly get time to visit our local temples and our occasional visits have stressed time schedule and work tension. Here it is cool and relaxing if you can stop for sometime and relax your mind without trying to achieve number of touch in a trip.
  • 👍 Very good holy place. Also nice view of surrounding.
