Mansa Devi Temple

About Mansa Devi Temple

Mansa Devi Temple, situated in the sacred city of Haridwar and known as मंसा देवी मंदिर, हरिद्वार in Hindi, emerges as a hallowed sanctuary devoted to the goddess Mansa Devi. Resting atop the Bilwa Parvat on the Sivalik Hills, the southernmost stretch of the Himalayas, this temple intricately weaves into the fabric of the Panch Tirth, a quintet of pilgrimages revered in Haridwar.

The temple embraces a unique significance as the celestial dwelling of Mansa Devi, an embodiment of Shakti believed to spring forth from the cogitations of Lord Shiva. Acknowledged as the sibling of the Nāga (serpent) Vasuki and the human manifestation offspring of Lord Shiva, Mansa, her name resonating with “wish,” garners veneration as the bestower of genuine supplicants’ aspirations. The lore recounts the tale of Mansa, an initially unassuming maiden oblivious to her authentic identity, embarking on an arduous Sadhana to commune with Lord Shiva and unveil her existential truth. Following years of spiritual dedication, she eventually rendezvoused with Lord Shiva, comprehended her genuine self, and metamorphosed into the compassionate goddess dedicated to the well-being of the cosmos.
