Chandrabadani Devi

About Chandrabadani Devi

Chandrabadani Devi, a revered deity, presides over a mountain boasting an elevation of 2,277 meters above sea level. Situated on the border of Devaprayag and Pratapnagar tehsils in Uttarakhand’s Tehri Garhwal district, the renowned Chandrabadani Devi temple graces the mountain’s summit, approximately 10 km north of Kandi Khal. According to Indian mythology, this sacred site is where the torso of Sati fell, resulting in the dispersion of her weapons, including numerous iron trishuls (tridents) and ancient statues surrounding the temple.

The temple not only provides a spiritual experience but also offers awe-inspiring vistas of the Surkanda, Kedarnath, and Badrinath peaks. Modest in size, the temple houses a Shri-yantra intricately carved on a flat stone instead of a traditional idol. Easily accessible by road, with Jamnikhal as a key point, the nearest railhead is in Rishikesh, and Jolly Grant Airport in Dehradun serves as the closest air transport hub.

A notable traditional highlight of the temple is the annual ritual where a cloth canopy is blindfoldedly tied to the ceiling over the Shri-yantra by the Brahmana priest. The temple attracts positive reviews on platforms such as TripAdvisor, Holidify, and Google, showcasing its popularity among visitors.
