If you are visiting Dharamshala, then make sure that you visit the Jwalamukhi Temple, which is one of the most renowned ancient temples of Goddess Durga. There is no idol located in the temple as it is believed that Sati's tongue fell here and the goddess is manifested as small blue flames that burn through fissures in the old rock. So, the Jwalamukhi, or the deity of fire, is worshipped in the form of flames coming out of the rock. The temple has a small platform in front and a huge brass bell, which was presented by the King of Nepal.
There is a mystic Yantra or a diagram of the Goddess inside the temple, which is covered with shawls and ornaments. Aprayer is performed five times in a day and a havan once, and a lot of tourists visit this beautiful temple to attend the prayers, which goes on for almost the whole day; and to enjoy the scenic views of the Dhauladhar range in the backdrop of the temple.
