“Hill Top Temple with Great Himalayas Views”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Tara Devi Temple at 1851m height above sea level is situated at a distance of around 15 kilometers from Shimla. If you are travelling on the Kalka - Shimla highway, NH22, towards Shimla, turn upward right from Shoghi. The Temple is around 6km from NH22. The Tara Devi Temple is situated at the top of a hill in Simla and the lush green environs surrounding it give the temple a very peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. One must visit this temple to check out the breath taking views of the countryside. The backdrop of the lofty Himalayas and the clean and fresh air works wonders and makes your vacation worthwhile. You can eat the Prasada (Blessed Food) on Tuesdays.

“Beautiful temple located at the top of a hill!”

We boarded the toy train from Simla to Tara Devi station. The ride was spectacular with a picturesque view of the hills.

“Nice secluded place of worship with great view”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Shimla can get too crowded and to the relief we have Tara Devi temple, its steep climb for the car, one can hike too. Atop you have shops for prasad and 2 temples. Tara devi temple also has bhandaras, where one can sit and take prasad. The temple is a small one, though has its importance in bhakti.

There is a restaurant at the top as well. The view is great and the wind is serene.

Located on top of a hill, the Tara Devi Complex commands lovely views of Shimla. Very clean and beautifully maintained. The cafe here also has fantastic views and a very helpful and friendly owner.

“Amazing Views”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

A long distance back along the highway towards Kalka. Steep drive in end but worth the drive. Amazing hilltop views. Beware of monkeys who snatched away our prasad.
