Excellent temple complex with many deities and Mansa devi is the main one. The cable car operators tried to force us to buy round tickets to both hill shrines
Mansa & Chandi or else for only Mansa we have to wait long time. We didn't fall for it and finished darshan in normal time.

I visited the place with my boyfriend when we went to Haridwar on our way back from Kedarkantha Trek. I had heard a lot about this place from my mother and wanted to get a darshan and get some prasad for our parents. But the mistake we made was instead of following the conventional way of the ropeway we decided to travel with our rented scooty up the slope. This was indeed a very bad experience for us because not only was the climb very steep we met uncountable scammers at every corner of the road. Young ladies and kids selling prasad literally surrounded us and ran after our scooty. At one point we were scared some of them might fall infront of our vehicle and put the blame on us. Not only that, some local boys even sent us in the wrong way when we asked them the direction so that we land into another scam. When we realised that we were in the wrong way we decided to stop and ask someone else about the correct way. But people agreed to help only if we buy prasad from their stall. Finally we did buy prasad from them just to save ourselves from getting lost and later found out that the coconuts provided in the prasad were fully rotten. The good part was we were finally shown the correct route. We even found that normal pedestrians were sent this wrong way so that they either buy prasad from those shops or rent out a ride from the bikers waiting there offering ride up to two to three people till the temple at very high prices. It broke my heart to see so much scam going on in a religious place where people go to get some mental peace.

The best way to avoid this is....use the ropeway and avoid taking this route itself. Inside the temple it was little crowded....though not too much......might appear a little risky during covid times. In normal times this much crowd is fine. But the rude way one purohit treated a poor man when he asked for some bibhuti by giving a rupee was disgusting. I thought of calling the man back and getting the bibhuti for him paying the right money but I myself carry minimal cash with me and that also most of the cash were paid to the scammers outside the temple so I could not do that. We had a proper darshan of the goddess and asked for her blessings. We even tied the knot around the tree as was the custom mentioned by my mother asking for our desires. Aesthetic wise I loved the place but the feeling of the scams going down was indeed heart-breaking. I would love to go back there but probably would not carry any cash with me except some little which I would offer to the Goddess.

The atmosphere was pious but the place was unkept and nnot neat at all. Atleast the area should have been regularly maintained properly.

Mansa devi temple is located on the Bilva parvat of Shivalika hills in the holy city of Haridwar in the state of Uttarakhand. It is dedicated to the Shakti in the form of Mansa. It is believed that she emerged from the mind of Shiva and is regarded as sister of Nagraj Vasuki. Mansa means wish and hence Mansa devi is believed to be fulfilling wishes of sincere devotees. Goddess Mansa is offered coconuts, fruits, garlands and incense sticks for prayer. These are available all the way to the temple and costs 50 INR. We used cable car and it cost us INR 122 for return ticket. It is considered as a siddha peeth and one of panch tirths in Haridwar. We had easy darshan to the temple and excellent darshan due to very less people.

Offers an OK view of Haridwar city along with Har Ki Paudi, The approach road is full of filth and touts all over selling over priced prasad items. Can be done away with if you are not a temple person.

Excellent place to go there this time, very much devotional vibes with this Temple. Haridwar is a holy religious place for Hindus, also good food around the temple you must try on.
