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.

We stayed closer to an entry to the temple from the mountain base where you could drive or even trek up. We decided to trek it up and boy what a trek. Right through the mountain jungles and woods.
The whole trip would easily take you around 3 hours - an hour up and an hour down is minimum for first timers.
It was not an easy one up or downhill but the views once at the top were worth every minute spent climbing up. On the way down do go to the Shiv temple as well, however, the path from thereon down is a bit confusing and easy to get lost, so I would rather suggest to go back to the main road and take the regular path down.

Temple is 2.5 KMs from main road. They have a very good link road to temple but you have to drive almost vertical.
Once you reach there, its so beautiful and clean; you'll just like to sit there and enjoy the peace and scenic beauty.
