Vajreshvari Temple


The temple of Vajreshvari is located in the town of NagarkotKangra districtHimachal PradeshIndia and is 11 km away from the nearest railway station of Kangra. The Kangra Fort is situated nearby. Its location on a mountain near Chamunda Devi temple, is 16 km from Nagarkot.


More details of this temple originally believed to have been built by Pandavas during Mahabharatha time can be read from the wikipedia link here. 


Please bear with the excessive number of photos...they are needed to give the true ambiance of the place..!
But , haven't I spared you the trouble of reading excessive text? (lol)!






















People think leaving the foot print in the temple is not good..and hence ...


Wish fulfilling tree..






Colorful roof top from within..!




Some shops on my way back..!







Made of dried coconut pulp..!




To counter the scorching hot sun, we helped ourselves with some traditional ice cones..!


So Hungry we were that we started our lunch in the reverse order...Some deserts & Sweet followed by the snacks..!




Enough of snacks... time to rush for a proper lunch...!
