3 Mansa Devi Temple

The temple layout is such that you are obliged to visit several minor shrines before the main idol of Mansa devi & obliged to shell out "donations" as requested by the priests there at each . Would suggest to put any money in the offering box rather than handing it over to the priests . Regretably didnt find any spirituality here .

Chandi Devi and Mansa Devi are two prime attractions of Haridwar and both are situated on top of hills which are on either side of the river Ganga. Both offer a picturesque view of the town Haridwar.
