Kunja Puri

Located at an altitude of 1645 m and lends a panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks to the North and Rishikesh, Haridwar and Doon valley to the South. Traveling towards Gangotri, about 6 km from Narendra Nagar the road bifurcates at Hindola Khal, leading to the shrine, which is 5 km further.’ Being a prime religious centre, thousands of visitors come throughout the year especially during ‘Navratras’ (April & October). Grand celebrations are held during the ‘Dusshera’ festival.

Lying in the divine Himalayas of Tehri Garhwal district, 3 Siddha Peeth are located well on top of three different mountains, dedicated to ‘Sati’ the wife of ‘Lord Shiva’. The holy triangle of the temples is linked with a famous tale when Sati, daughter of Daksha Prajapati, immolated herself at the sacrificial spot Lord Shiva took the dead body of his wife and started walking towards the Himalayas. The places where the parts of her dead body fell are known as Kunjapuri, Surkanda Devi and Chandrabadani and are thus worshipped as Siddha Peeths.
