Dhari Devi Temple, Srinagar

Dhari Devi Temple, Srinagar

Dhari Devi Temple is dedicated to Maa Kali and it is located on the bank of Alaknanda River. This temple is one amongst popular Maa Kali temples of India and having quite special spiritual significance. Thousands of devotees come at this spot every year for devotion. Dhari Devi Temple is situated in between Rudraprayag and Srinagar and thus you can reach to this spot via good transportation facility. The temple was also known for animals sacrificing and this ritual was common in marriage and child birth. But as per the mythology, one day Maa kali came into the dream of head priest with anger and told them to stop sacrificing animals. Next morning priests woke up and announced ‘No more animals sacrifice’ at this place and this temple has turned into first sacrifice free temple of Uttarakhand. Later on, because of Srinagar Hydel Project, Dhari Devi Temple has shifted from its original location. It’s assumed by the people that the flood came in 2013 due to this reason only.
