Mansa Devi Temple Haridwar
Custodians of beliefs of many devotees, Mansa Devi temple blesses the lives of those who visit there. Located atop the Bilwa Parvat, Mansa Devi Temple is known for being home to Manasa, a form of Shakti believed to be emerged from the mind of Lord Shiva. The temple is also one of the three Siddh Peetha, other two being Chandi Devi Temple and Maya Devi Temple. The literal meaning of the terms ‘Mansa’ is ‘wish’ and it is one of the places of worship where desires get fulfilled. Devotees can make a wish by tying a thread to branches of nearby the temple and once their wishes gets fulfilled, they visit the temple again to untie the thread from the tree. The temple features two main idols of Goddess Mansa, one with three mouths and five arms, while the other one has eight arms.
To reach the main temple, one can either walk uphill or can hop in a cable car called "Mansa Devi Udankhatola" or bus. Spectacular view of river Ganga from the cable car is the main attraction of the Mansa Devi Temple.
