Temples  & Legends Of India
Himachal Pradesh





Goddess Chamunda is seated at Jadrangal village in Kangra area located on the right bank of Baner Khad (Banganga), a tributary of Beas river. The place is about 20 Kms. from Kangra town. There is a Siva lingam under the rock where the temple of Chamunda is sited. There are no legends about the lingam. The idol is called Nandikeswar. So the sacred site is called Chamunda Nandik- eshwar.

In Jallandar Mahatmya, Chapter VI reference is made to Chamunda Nandik- eshwar and people believe the reference is to these two deities Chamunda and Nandikeshwar.The legend associated is well-known. In Satya Yuga two Daityas (demons), Shumbh and Nishumbh engaged themselves in deep meditation and were blessed by Lord Brahma with immense power.
