Create an itinerary including Kunjapuri Devi Temple
Admire the peaks of the Greater Himalayas from Kunjapuri Devi Temple, one of the two famous Hindu temples in the Rishikesh area. Dedicated to the goddess Durga, the temple is believed to be the place where the chest of the self-immolated Shakti’s burned Sati fell. Perched on a hillock at 1,676 m (5,499 ft) above sea level, the temple has a large observation platform offering sweeping views over the snow-capped peaks of Swarga Rohini, Gangotri, Banderpunch, and Chaukhamba, as well as green terraced fields below. Leave an offering or feed numerous snow monkeys, who come here regularly to feed. Put Kunjapuri Devi Temple and other Rishikesh attractions into our Rishikesh trip itinerary planning site, and watch your holiday take shape.
