When we plan to go on vacation, Himachal Pradesh comes to our mind at least once. People from India and abroad come here for holidays. There are many high mountain lakes and many ancient temples here. This is because the science beauty of Himachal Pradesh gives peace to the people who come here.


There are about 2000 temples in the whole Pradesh. One of the major temples is the Chamunda Devi Mandir.  It is believed that the wishes of all the devotees who come here are fulfilled. Peoples from all over the country come here to take Ma's blessings. After killing Asura Chund and Mund, the name of this Devi's temple became Chamunda.


About 700 years ago Rao Jodha built this temple. This temple is located here before the city of Chamba. Although this temple is located on a hill, you do not have to work hard to get here. If you came here by hiring a car it will take you down in front of the Temple's gate. 


Why is it famous?

The Chamunda Devi temple is also considered to be the house of the gods. The temple is located in the district Kangra in the state of Himachal Pradesh. Chamunda Devi temple is one of the 51 pith of Swati. This temple is mainly dedicated to Mata Kali, who stands for power. The origin of this Maa's name is described in "Durga Saptami".


The temple is mainly famous for its great mythology. Many decades ago, Sumbha and Nisumbha were the names of two giants who ruled the world. At that time the earth and the heavens were being persecuted by them. To escape from it, gods and people worship Goddess Durga and Goddess Durga says that She will save them from those demons and incarnates herself as Kaushiki.


Ma Kaushiki was seen by the messenger of Sumbha and Nisumbha. They went to their king and said that "you are the king of Treelokes and you have everything So you should have a woman who is the most beautiful and who has divine power ". They send an envoy to the goddess and say that they want to make her queen. 


Ma said that "if they could defeat her in battle then she will marry them ". Sumbha and Nishumbha get angry when they hear this from her. Then Sumbha and Nishumbha ordered two giants named Chand and Mund to bring the goddess. But Ma Kaushiki rejects their offer then the two Giants attack her. At that time she took the form of Kali and sent the two giants to Yamaoka.
