This famous temple lies in the Kangra district in the Kangra town and is counted among the 51 shakti-peeths in the country. This temple at one point of time was famous for its wealth and resources and was completely destroyed by Northern invaders. In the year 1905 there was a devastating earthquake which all but completely destroyed the temple and it had to be rebuilt in the year 1920 and has continued to be a place of religious interest ever since. Not far from this temple are located the Kangra fort which is about 3 kms. away and also the Jayanti Debi temple which lies on the hill opposite to the one where the fort is located.
