We drove to a high plateau from where a forest path led us to the Temple. The path wasn’t an incline and quite easy to navigate. We ambled along, talking, taking in the sights.

‘Tara’ stands for a single point of light that helps one navigate. The Temple is 250+ years old. It is surrounded by red religious flags. Its precincts are quite huge with facilities like shops also available.

We removed our shoes and climbed a few steps to reach the Temple. The first thing that struck us was how stupendous its architecture was! The second thing was a delicate tree full of pink blossoms; what a sight!

The third was the corking scenery in front of us. Being on a hilltop, you can see kilometers in every direction. Heaving mountains & green valleys stretched out in front of us.

Standing on this hilltop, you can’t help imagining that Tara Devi is keeping an eye on all her disciples from here. Because of this sweeping view, the Temple isn’t just a pilgrim spot; it’s also frequented by tourists.

The Temple is open every day (except special occasions) and its timings are 7 AM to 6:30 PM. If you visit on the Navratri Ashtami day, you can witness a grand worship as well as participate in a fair where you can also watch wrestling competitions!

most serene place on hill top , is within 30 km from Shimla on the way to Delhi and if you choose to take bypass road its worth the drive.
its on top of the hills you must be expert in driving on hills otherwise at time it could be little challenging but good part is this temple has sufficient parking space Aslo

The temple and its premises were kept neat and tidy. We enjoyed the serene sorroundings as well as the magnificent view of the valley. There was no crowd and it was very peaceful.
Closeby there was the Doodhahari Vaishnavi temple which was also a place fit for prayers. A Shiva temple, 1.5 km within the forest too was closeby and worth seeing.
This place should definitely come in the "must see"list of tourists visiting Shimla.

This temple of Tara Devi ( a form of Goddess Durga ) is situated at an altitude. While this at level with Shimla in terms of height ; the best time to visit is on Sundays when there is Langar / Bhandara. This place has a series of steps and climb and once at the top there is so much space all around ; surrounded by nature. A new temple has opened , made all in wood and the architecture is influenced by tibetian and buddhist cultures. In my last visit the new temple was being constructed and this time it was all completed. There is daily aarti at 6pm during winters and 7pm during summers. One can see beautiful himalayan birds all around.

There are strict covid protocols being followed here. It is great during winters but it gets below zero soon by 5pm in the evening so so wear enough warm clothes.
The priest had a near death experience and he was recollecting the power of God and the belief and faith in the supreme power during our visit.

The temple has Tara Devi with Kali on the left and Goddess Saraswati on the right. It is beautiful and bright and there is ample space with carpets to sit down, relax, meditate, pray.

In all other months apart from December ; once can do trekking all the way down from the mountain top where the temple is located to the road level. I did this trek in my previous visit and it takes approximately an hour depending on the pace of walking.

Tara devi temple is some 10 kms before shimla city. The temple is located on the top of the hill. 6 kms uphill drive from the main highway. The view from the hilltop is very beautiful. This is ancient devi temple. One feels very peaceful inside the temple premises. Temple premises and the architecture is very beautiful.

This temple located in Shogi (outskirts of Shimla) is a must for nature lovers. The temple itself is artistically designed with intricate wood work. Mata Rani's blessings energizes you to the core.
