KANGRA VALLEY

The Kangra valley in Himachal Pradesh is famous for the numerous temples of Goddesses.
The temples are JWALAMUKHI, CHINTAPURNI, VAJRESWARI, BAGALAMUKHI, and CHAMUNDA.
In November 2000, we visited all these temples and in these web pages we would like to share the experiences with all the Devi Bhakthas.

VAJRESWARI

The temple of VAJRESWARI is in the town of Kangra. This temple is closely associated with the history of India. Many invaders from Afganisthan came to India specifically to loot this temple. Mohammed Gaznavi attacked Kangra in 1019 AD and took away gold , diamonds and jewellery worth billions. Even after repeated looting the temple remained prosperous.
An English traveller has mentioned in the eighteenth century that the temple floor was laid with silver bars. However what the various invasions could not do was done by nature and the temple was destroyed in the earthquake of 1907.
