The Legend of Baglamukhi Temple

Lying at the foot of Himalayas, the states of Himachal Pradesh is also dotted with major Hindu shrines and temples. But among this, a lesser-known yet extremely mysterious temple is Baglamukhi Temple in Kangra District.

From various legends around the temples, one that is not well-known is that Goddess Baglamukhi was worshipped by King Ravana. When Lord Rama got to know about this, he also visited the temple and invoked the Goddess after the victory on Lanka. The temple is also mentioned in Mahabharata.

From the temple’s walls to the devotees’ clothes and prasad (offering), everything should be yellow in color. This is one reason that the Goddess is also called Pitambari Devi.
