Jwalamukhi Temple

Jwalamukhi Temple is located 30 km south of Kangra valley. Devoted to Goddess Jwalamukhi, there is a copper pipe in this temple through which natural gas comes out and the priest of the temple lights this. This flame is worshiped as a sign of the goddess Jwalamukhi. The nine flames have been named after Goddesses - Mahakali, Unpurna, Chandi, Hinglaj, Bindhya Basni, Maha Lakshmi, Saraswati, Ambika and Anji Devi. These flames burn always without any fuel or assistance and may be seen erupting from a rock-side.Ancient legends speak of a time when demons lorded over the Himalaya Mountains and harassed the gods. Led by Lord Vishnu, the gods decided to destroy them. They focused their strengths and large flames rose from the ground. Since that fire, a young girl took birth. She is regarded as Adishakti-the first 'shakti'.
