The Gharwal region of Uttar Pradesh is a veritable haven of yugas old shrines, small and big and are found lying over hills or valleys. They are the reputed centres of pilgrimage drawing steady streams of bhaktas throughout the year. In addition to eternally sacrosanct places like Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri, Yamunotri etc., there are small shrines enshrining tutelary goddesses, visited largely by locals most and pilgrims next. The temples with their easy approachability and divinities showering boons they are keeping aloft the banner of devotion ever fluttering. Besides visiting the famous temples, locals offer soulful prayers to the deities of their own places.

The Surkhanda Devi temple lying at an altitude of 11,000 feet MSL near Mussourie claims large number of devotees both of Indian and alien origin seems a modest shrine with a deity, short in stature, but the raining of boons on the adorers, the Mother does not lag behind any of her counterparts anywhere in that vast region. People adore her with genuine faith to be rowed across the ocean of hardships and she too never let down anyone of the worshippers. Hence the ascendancy of her fame and mounting of devotional fervour. Its location amidst Nature's abundant spectacles of scenery is its additional attraction. Due to lying at high Himalayan range with lovely valleys and the road winding with many curves like a white ribbon against the green hills affords an unforgettable experience.

It lies on the way to Dehradun from Mussourie and 35 km. off Mussourie. To reach the temple a distance of 3 km. has' to be covered by walk from Devasthali.
