    Visit early morning
    The temple was crowded but you have the choice of buying the premium darshan tickets (real time saver!). The tickets you buy for Chandi Devi temple can also be used at the Mansa Devi temple. In our view this is a very good deal. The cable car services are usually preferred by a majority of the people visiting the temple and it carries the pilgrims directly from the lower station to the temple. It is convenient and offers good views of the surrounding areas. Form the Har ki Pauri area, the temple is about 20-25mnts away in an e-Rikshaw.

    Colourful and fascinating
    It’s a very local experience not something that the average foreigner might pursue but we found it fascinating. Getting to the cable car requires an auto rickshaw which our hotel arranged. Once there the security staff kindly took us in Hand to guide us through the somewhat complicated arrangements to access cable car. It wasn’t exactly Swiss standard but worked. Once there we headed for the close by temple. It being a religious holiday we weren’t the only ones. It’s colourful and fascinating.

    Darshan on hills
    When visiting Haridwar, a journey to Mansa Devi and Chandi Devi temples is essential. Autos are readily available throughout the city, offering rides to these key landmarks for a reasonable price, typically ranging from Rs. 800 to 1000 for a half-day trip. Access to both temples involves either a scenic climb up the hill or a convenient ride on the ropeway, the preferred option for most visitors. You can purchase a combined cable car ticket for both temples at a discounted rate from a designated location. Alternatively, individual tickets for the ropeway to Chandi Devi temple cost Rs. 220. While there might be a short wait for the cable car, you can comfortably wait near the ticket counter. Upon purchasing your ticket, remember to register your entry and receive your queue number from the counter attendant. A security personnel will call out the queue numbers for boarding. It's advisable not to bring any offerings like Prasad or flowers from below, as numerous shops near the temple entrance offer these items. Since the entrance and exit gates are separate, you can conveniently store your shoes at a shop near the exit. During our visit, even at 10 am, there was little rush, allowing us to have a serene darshan. After exiting the temple, you may also choose to explore the nearby Anjana Devi temple, located approximately 100 meters to the left after exit.

I understand this is an important place for Hindus and Indian people but this is westerners perspective for other tourists.

Do not bother with this place it really is not worth a visit.

Cable cars up are good and that is about it (R220 each person) but you get to top and then attacked by Sellers, Beggars are everywhere and be careful of monkeys attacking too etc You cannot really see the temple, you walk inside for about 1 min and back out, There is literally nothing to see.

The bottom area has bouncy castles, 3D simulation ride even more sellers

You can reach this temple by foot which steep 2km walk and the path is generally well made but most travelers prefer to use ropeway which costs INR 200/- per person and you reach less than 5mins except on crowded season which is Navratri.

This temple situated across the Ganga from Mansa Devi temple has adequate parking for cars. You can either walk up which is steep or easily take a ropeway ride to the top. Beware of monkeys there which will snatch food and even water. Darshan is pretty decent and not rushed. You can buy Prasad and offerings from the shops which are in huge numbers outside.
