  JWALAMUKHI - DURGA MANDIR

It is one of the Sakti-Peethas and an elaborate description of its glory is embedded in Puranas like Sivapurana, Devibhagavata, beside Tantra granthas. Its location at the foot of hills is enhancing its glory and bringing regular streams of theists and tourists round the year. The sumptuous growth of green foliage surrounding it exhilarates any visitor, irrespective of caste marks he has on his forehead. The oddity that greets the devotees is - only the Jyoti comes into their view on entering the temple. The resplendent jyoti burning bright always is worshipped as Mother Jagajjani. Neither icon of any shape or size; nor portrait in any colour is seen anywhere here. In this respect, it is akin to Parsees offering worship to burning light. There is a kund - a tank filled with pure water in front of the mandir. Every visitor taking bath or washing his feet enter the temple and it is an established tradition followed without exception. It is said that one of the organs of Sati fell here, when Sri Mahavishnu cut the Sati's corpse borne by Lord Siva. Hence unprecedented spiritual significance for visitation and adoration.

It lies near Jwalamukhi railway station and can be reached by four wheelers.
