Mansa Devi Temple

Located on the top of the Bilwa Parvat is the Mansa Devi Temple in Haridwar.
lt is one of the most visited and prominent temples in North
lndia. The Mansa Devi Temple is dedicated to the Goddess Mansa Devi, wife of the Nag King Vasuki and a form of Shakti (Power). The temple gets its name from the word ‘mansha’ which means wish and it is believed that the Goddess fulfils the wishes of a sincere devotee. It is one of the famous Siddha Peethas and devotees tie threads on a holy tree that is located in the vicinity of the temple for their wishes to be granted by the Goddess. They come back to untie them after their wishes are fulfilled. A particular statue of the Goddess in the temple has five arms and three faces and another has eight arms. There is a ropeway service known as Devi Udankhatola that carries the devotees to Mansa Devi Temple.
