  • I visited here last year. Its a very nice and beautiful place. Well-Maintained and good environment.
  • visited in february first week, 2018. close to shimla(around 20kms), on a hill top...as with all tracks here, a bit of expertise in driving in such terrains is required to not be a nuisance to others(khud maro wo tumhaari problem hai). parking available near the top/temple, some shops are also there where you can buy chips/juices/water etc. toilets are there half way the stair-climb. few monkeys always hanging around to see what you brought for a meal. beautiful views from the top...otherwise it is as good as any other temple. you will enjoy a trip to this place. few people(that is to my liking) visit the place.
  • Tara devi temple is situated at awesome location. The views are great specially from Dhudadhari Mata temple. The road to temple is steep climb and only local drives should drive here. Then view of Shimla city from here is unmatched to any other location. Definitely worth the visit. Also you take back blessing from the Tara mata.
  • It's a popular temple in Shimla city. It lies on the way from shoghi to Shimla. There is a toy train station also named as Taradevi. The temple is situated atop a hill. The way to reach there is sort of a swirling loop. Try to take your vehicle there if only you are an expert driver for hilly, sharp bend roads. Otherwise better to hire a taxi for to and fro from Shoghi/ Taradevi or your place of choice to visit the temple.
  • Very peaceful place But to reach you need a skilled driver
