The hill can be reached during a road by vehicles and to reach the summit, one can choose for concrete steps or cable car. Naina Devi Temple is a holy place particularly for the Hindus. Pilgrims come to visit this temple to pay their respect to the Goddess. According to the legends, the different body parts of Sati fell on the earth throughout the time of self-sacrifice. It is believed that Sati's eyes fell at this point and subsequently, a temple was built here to commemorate the goddess. The term 'Naina' suggests 'eyes', so the goddess came to be well-known as Naina Devi. In the temple compound, there is huge Peepal tree that is acclaimed to be there from past many centuries. On the right side of the entrance to the main shrine, idols of Lord Hanuman and Lord Ganesha are located. After crossing the main gate of the shrine, two striking statues of Lions are visible.

The Temple is perched over a little yet scenic hill. From the suburbs of the temple, one can spot the picturesque Govind Sagar Lake. Close to the main temple, there is a small cave, which is well-known as Shri Naina Devi Cave. In the earlier days, people used to trek the steep path of 1.25 kms to reach the temple at the hill-top.
