Jhoola Devi Temple, Ranikhet


Jhula Devi Temple is situated on the Kumaon hill, in a quiet and secluded environment, at a distance of 7 km from Ranikhet. The main deity of this temple is Goddess Durga, and it is said that the temple was built to seek Goddess Durga�s protection from the wild animals that inhabited this place. The story goes that the idol of Goddess Durga was dug out from a patch of ground by a shepherd, after being guided so by the goddess herself in his dream. The Jhula Devi Temple of Ranikhet is made on that particular spot from where this idol was found. The fascinating feature of the Jhula Devi Temple is the impressive cluster of numerous holy bells, which are tied to its walls, and Jhula Devi is known to bless her devotees and grant their wishes. The people of Uttarakhand hold Jhula Devi in high esteem and believe that your wishes come true each time you tie a bell at the temple.
