Chamunda


This is one of the most popular Chamundi devi temples and is located in Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh.
More details can be found in the wikipedia link here.

The speciality of this temple is that it is situated bank of Baner Khad (Banganga), a tributary of Beas river.
The river is actually at the back yard of this temple and gives a picturesque backdrop to this temple which is otherwise beautiful too..!
I would urge you to visit the videos section to view the beauty of this river..There are about 5 video clips that in all will be about 3 mins duration.









A serious blogger..perhaps..!

  9. Thanks DeeBee.. Well .. rivers are considered sacred in Hindu culture and so invariably there are temples built on their banks..!
    I guess, they are sacred as water is life sustaining element of the nature after all..!
