This is a very old and popular temple in Kothi village of Reckong Peo. One has to cover head with traditional head caps and leave the personal belongings in the lokera before entering the temple. Photography and leather products are not allowed inside.
The temple has a spacious courtyard with pagoda style architecture. The inner sanctum is also very spacious and surrounded by chambers of temple authority. The face of the idol is normally covered with long hairs. But from 11 to 11.30 in the morning the devotees get a chance to see the golden face when the hairs are kept aside. Since the devi here is worshipped as tribal deity, the look is totally different as to what we are used to.
It's recommended to visit if you pass through Reckong Peo.

This centuries old temple is around 1.5 km walk from Reckong Peo’s Himachal Road Transport Corporation bus stand. It is built with layers of rocks and wood. Temple is sentry guarded and protected due to religious sentiments of local people associated with the temple.

One needs to remove foot wear and enter the temple. Inside there is local headgear which is mandatorily to be used to cover the head. This is provided free of charge. The puja starts at 11am and goes on for approximately 45 min. They play some local musical instruments for the entire pooja period. During puja only temple priests are allowed to see the deity and puja rituals. Devotees and visitors need to sit at places away from deity view and once puja is over can go and view the deity.

The goddess hidimbi is considered very powerful and people who lost their relatives in the mountains or those who are facing difficulties visit the temple often to make a wish.

Architecturally the temple looks like a primitive pagoda and is beautiful with lot of open space inside the temple complex. A must see attraction to get a flavour of religious rituals of local people.

Located at Reckong peo (HP) , I went with my family. Temple is quite old which relates it to the history and its artistic beauty. While entering the temple one has to cover head.
You can also capture some of the beautiful pictures of the surroundings.
Five stars for the temple.
