A platform marks the spot which along with a wooden swing is nconsidered sacred and a place of worship. The temple itself is rather small and simple, but it is held in great reverence by the faithful. This place is visited by devotee in large numbers during the Kumbh Mela and the Navratras.
Close to the Alopi Devi Mandir is another small temple dedicated to the Goddess Durga and her nine avatars. This temple also houses a Shivalinga and an idol of Hanuman.
