  • If u r from shimla or tourist in shimla . Visit this temple apart from blessing u will get to see some beautiful sceniary
  • Beautiful place to visit. We started trekking from 5 kilometres to reach the temple. A small path covered with 🌲 deodaar trees, cool breeze,birds chirping. It was a great trekking experience. It was June so weather was cloudy and half of the way was covered with clouds. It felt like heaven on earth. If you are trekking for the temple keep your water bottles filled and some snacks in your bag. Be aware of the monkies. Try not to make aye contact with them. And don't run, if needed call locals to help. As we were in group so the whole jungle path was easy and safe. Try to trek in groups or with the locals so it will be easy to trek. Locals were so helpful there and I liked their typical himachali rhytdm of speaking Hindi. Overall it was a wonderful experience going there.
