KANGRA AREA

Introduction

Brief mention may be made of a few other shrines of Kangra area. This area had unfortunately been subjected to several plunders and the rulers of Kangra have had their full share of the vicissitudes of fortune. The temples have often been plundered and the gold and silver taken away. The Earthquake of 1905 had also damaged some of them.

"The temple of Devi, situated in this suburb of Bhawan, is among the most ancient,- as it was once one of the most renowned shrines of Northern India. It finds historic mention in Ferishta's account of the fourth invasion of India by Sultan Mahmud A.D. 1009 and again in A.D. 1360, when for a second time it was plundered by the Emperor Firoz Tughlak. In the time of Mahmud, if Ferishta is to be at all credited, the riches of the shrine were enormous.
