Kunjapuri Devi Temple is a sacred temple and one of the 52 Shakti Peeths. It is believed Kunjapuri is a spot where the chest of Sati had fallen. The temple also completes the circle of Siddh Peeths. Situated on the top of the hills, the temple can only be reached by climbing 80 steep steps of stairs. The view from the top is simply breathtaking and offers a panoramic scene of the Himalayan peaks on the North and Rishikesh, Haridwar and the Doon valley on the South. Being an important pilgrimage site, the temple welcomes thousands of visitors throughout the year and mostly during the festival of Navaratri. Set in between the lush green forest, this place is ideal for adventurous and nature lovers. One can also witness the majestic sunrise or sunset on the Greater Himalayan Peaks and the vast Indo-Gangetic plains.
