Mansa Devi Temple

Location: 

Goddess Mansa Devi, wife of the Nag King Vasuki, is believed to fulfill the wishes of devotees visiting her temple. To seek the blessings of the Goddess and get their wishes fulfilled, the devotees tie sacred threads on the sacred tree that stands proud in the temple premises. Once the wishes are fulfilled, the devotees mark respect by returning to the tree to untie the threads.

One of the famous Siddhapeeths, the Mansa Devi temple is located atop the Shivalik Hills. A picturesque view of Haridwar awaits those visiting this temple. Mansa Devi temple is one vertex of the Siddhapeeth triangle formed between three temples, Chandi Devi and Maya Devi temples being the other two.
