CHINTPURNI DEVI TEMPLE

Introduction

Along with hundreds of mythical legends about the origin of a temple in different parts of India, the very popular temple of Chintpurni temple is of the same type. The legend is that one Bhagat Mai Dass was a great devotee of Durga deity and worshipped her with great devotion and never bothered over mundane affairs. He was a married man and his family along with others had shifted from Patiala side to village Rapoh in Una district of Himachal Pradesh.

The legend is that one-day Bhagat Mai Dass was going to his father-in-law's place and felt tired while by a jungle and slept under a tree. He had a dream : a young girl appeared before him and wanted him to stay there and worship her. He woke up in bewilderment.
