Situated on the top of Neel Parvat, the Mandir was built in the year 1929 by the then ruler of Kashmir, late Mr. Suchat Singh. The shrine houses a huge figurine of Goddess Chandi because of which it is named so. It is believed that whoever visits this temple once, his/her wishes are always granted because of which it is considered as Siddhapitha.
Positioned alongside the river Ganges the temple has gained maximum attention among tourists, in Haridwar. Adding to its beauty is the walk up to the temple.
