Jai Mata ki

Temple is located at hilltop and climbing stairs is required. You may take an auto from the Bus Stand to avoid walking. It is a shaktipeeth and a visit is recommended.

The jyot seems to be burning forever without any oil or ghee. Nice temple. There are many local stories of miracles about it.

I have visited this temple number of time but never had that feeling whenever visited again. Always had peaceful feeling. nice arrangement to handle huge number of visitors. Parking is also not an issue since there is private car parking beside local bus stand.

Famous temple where a Jawala (light) is continuously enlighten without any usage of Ghee, Oil due to magic of Goddess. Also one can find one umbrella brought by king Akbar for the Goddess ans showed pride to Devi so later Devi converted into some metal which couldn't be recognized. Overall its a historical place.

Mata Jawalamukhi Temple is famous for the continuous JOT where even scientists are also not able to figure out the force propelling it.
