Dhungri was the place near Manali where Hadimba had resorted for meditation. A temple of Hadimba in pagoda style was raised and she became Devi Hadimba. Hadimba had supernatural powers owing to tapashya and was kind to her people.

Hadimba became the patron-deity of the Rajas of Kulu. The Tilak ceremony of every Raja of Kulu has to be done with the permission of the goddess and after worshipping her a, buffalo is sacrificed.

Certain ceremonials where the patron deity is closely associated have to be performed in the Dussehra festival of Kulu. The Dussehra festival is held at Dhalpur Maidan and as mentioned the idol of Raghunathji is taken there. From his temple the goddess Hadimba blesses the ceremonial horse. The ceremony is called as 'Ghor Pooja'.
