Create an itinerary including Hidimba Devi Temple
Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of Hidimba Devi Temple, a sanctuary in the Himalayan foothills dedicated to a deity from the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata. Dating back to the 16th century, the temple was built over a massive, jutting rock, a manifestation of the earth goddess. Interestingly, devotees here pay their respects to the lark rock, instead of an image of the deity. Admire the tall wooden tower and the sacred stone inside, or enjoy the atmosphere of the exterior, surrounded by a tranquil cedar forest. With our international travel planner, Manali attractions like Hidimba Devi Temple can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Hidimba Devi Temple also called Dhungari Temple, locally. Visit the 1553 CE architecture attached with the mythologies and tales. Visit for worship. The place is good to spend time peacefully...

  • I like the most, come early morning here and you feel the place. The temple is good and preserved very well. You can do many activities over their as well like you have an option of photography. You also get a option to spend time in beautiful garden. Apart from that the tall trees are make this place so special and beautiful.
  • Must visit this temple when you're in Manali. This place offers a great culture and atmosphere. The rabbits you'll find here are the cutest. Do not forget to get yourself dressed in the local attire and get some good pictures before leaving this place. You can hire the local dress for few minutes and get some amazing pictures.
