Reviewed 19 July 2014

Mata Mansa Devi is a Hindu temple dedicated to goddess Mansa Devi, a form of Shakti, in the Panchkula.It is one of the prominent Shakti temples of North India. Thousands of devotees visit the shrine from various parts of the country, and especially during the Navratra mela, this numbeParikrama' that is one of the most important feature of Hindu religion, architecture and art is blends perfectly into the temple with typically Moghul architecture.r rises to lakhs everyday for the nine auspicious days.The place is very good and i love the food over there which we people called LANGAR.

If you are in Chandigarh or Panchkula and looking for a temple to visit - this is the place to go. A large well managed complex within convenient driving distance, the temple has a calming effect on the believers. Avoid rush days. Best time to visit is early morning or at 4 pm.

I vaguely remember since how many years i've been visiting this temple every time i visit Chandigarh. Have seen it change over the years, develop from a small hillside temple to a immensely huge temple complex in recent years. It used to be very calming to go there but has become overly commercialized now. Still not a bad place to visit. Used to have one of the best tasting teas i ever had years ago.. don't know if it still is the case.

Try and go early in the morning to have a hassle free darshana. It is very peaceful in the early mornings before the touts, shops and crowds arrive.

i am reasonably religious person. However, the place is a serious disappointment for any emotion like that. The moment you reach the place, we are overwhelmed by the shopkeepers forcing you to remove your shoes in their shops. once you do that mistake, they will fleece you mercilessly with average products being sold in the name of offerings. remove your shoes only a place near the temple, which offers free service. public toilet available is very small, ill-maintained and total failure to handle the crowd, which sometimes, runs in hundreds of thousands. be prepared to stand in queue for hours together on weekends and religious days. However, if you are a V.I.P. or some rich donator, you will be given special treatment and direct access to main temple. no nice place to eat;beggars all around; no respect for queue increasingly so as you reach the main temple. after all the turmoil, when you reach the main temple, you get to stay there for few seconds only. in my opinion, a strict NO for families with small children, old people, on weekends and religious days. TIP- prefer to go in afternoon on weekdays, you may find very less crowd. once you finish this ordeal, there is hardly any religious emotion left in you. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING.
