Shikari Devi Temple and Sanctuary


The Shikari Devi temple is devoted to Shikari Devi , the Goddess reverred in the form of stone idol. Hunters in the area once prayed to the goddess for success in their hunt and here perhaps, lies the origin of the name "Shikari Devi". Interestingly, the temple which is said to have been in existence since the time of the Pandavas, has no roof . Temple is situated at the top of the hill and surrounded by thick Oak and Coniferous forests . The altitude is more than 3200 meter . From Janjehli , a picturesque village the distance of temple is 16 km and road passes through Shikari Devi Sanctuary .

WE are now organizing tours to Shikari Devi :) I went their two times in last two months and i thought people bored of their daily life in Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon and Chandigarh deserve to be there to see Mother Nature at its best :)

“A walk Through the ancient hunting grounds.”
I am heading to the Shikari Devi today (06-04-2013), Planning to visit Kamru Naag as well whilst declining. I have been to Kamru Naag before but never got chance to visit Shikari Devi. Have been planning this for a while now, Finally making this trip happen after a long official struggle. Backpacks, Tent, edibles and spirit… all are geared up !! Please “Like” Himalayan Drifters Page on facebook for more details of the trip.
