Jwalamukhi Devi Temple, Himachal Pradesh

Jwalamukhi Devi Temple

This temple is situated in the Beas valley, and is at a distance of 56 kilometers away from Dharamsala. The temple does not contain idol of any deity but a blue flame is worshipped here. The flame appears to be burning continuously from the rocks. A legend says that this flame is of Jalandhara, a demon and he was buried by Lord Shiva under the mountains. Constructed by Sikh Raja Khaak Singh, the temple is well known for its ostentatious architecture. The most significant features of this temple are the gold loaded pinnacles and doors of silver. April and October months are considered to be the most suitable time for visiting this place, as two annual fairs - one is the Nagini Mata fair and the other one is Navaratri fair, are celebrated here during this time. This temple is located on the Dharamsala –Shimla road and can be reached by hiring a taxi or boarding a bus.
