I went to Jawali Ji Temple. It is one of the 51 Shaktipitha and Hindus believe that a visit to Jwala Devi temple in Kangra leads to end of their struggle and commencement of happy days. It is great place to go.

We come here every year. The journey by autorickshaw to the temple is always exciting. This time my 9 year old was more excited on the steep road and was very curious to know from where the fire was coming.
