Things to Do in Shimla

    Nestled amidst breathtaking mountainous surroundings atop the Prospect Hill, Kamna Devi Temple is approximately 6 km away from the hill station of Shimla. Perched at an elevation of about 2150 m above sea level, the temple is within walking distance from Boileauganj on Shimla–Bilaspur Road.

    The presiding deity of this temple is Goddess Kali - a form of Goddess Durga. It is believed that Goddess Kali fulfils the desires of all her devotees who travel up the hill and offer prayers in the temple. Built by the Rana of Junga, this temple is visited by countless devotees every year.

    Whether you are a devotee, nature lover or adventure-seeker, your visit to Kamna Devi Temple is bound to be a memorable experience. Close to the temple, there is a happening picnic spot that oozes with immense natural beauty. The picturesque view of Tara Devi and southern Shimla from here is mesmerizing. People can also indulge in adventurous activities like trekking and rock-climbing at the Prospect Hill.

  • Luturu Mahadev Temple

    Luturu Mahadev Temple, located around 4 km away from Solan district, is perched atop a lofty mountain. Raja of Bhagal constructed the beautiful Shikhara architectural style temple in the year 1621. Legend has it that Lord Shiva appeared in the king's dream and asked him to construct a temple on top of the hill.

    This shrine, housing a Shiva Lingam (black stone symbolising Lord Shiva), attracts a number of devotees during the festival of Mahashivratri. The temple is an amazing testimony to the hard work of the Rajputs as it was built on rough terrains and at the time when no modern machinery was available.

    The path leading to this shrine is challenging, but the spiritual enthusiasm keeps the pilgrims energetic all the way to overcome every hindrance. From the temple, visitors can behold spectacular sights of the surrounding landscape.
