Bhuvneshwari Devi Temple

Bhuvneshwari Devi Temple

Bhuvneshwari Devi Temple, Visit Bhuvneshwari Devi Temple of Uttaranchal, Temple tour of Bhuvneshwari Devi TempleGarhwal is the middle of Himalayas with Himachal Pradesh in the west and northwest, China in the north and wetern Uttar Pradesh in the south. Kumaon is located at the eastern part of Gahwal. The ancient text describe it as Kedarkhand or the region of Kedarnath.

Worship of Lord Shiva and Devi Durga is predominant in the entire region. Nearly every hill top has a temple attracting villagers from the far off places.However there are certain temples which are considered as Sidh Peeths. People visit these places regularly to revere the deity. One such temple is located at Sangura (BILKHET).

Along the right hand banks of River Nyaar( also called (NARAD GANGA) there is a Siddh Peeth of Maa- Bhuvneshwari about 15 Km. away from Satpuli in Pauri district. Its believed that all wishes are granted by Maa-Bhuvneshwari. Just eleven Parikrama at the temple fulfills one's wish. Legends about this temple claim that this was the home chosen by Maa - Bhuvneshwari herself.

The story goes back to the ancient times when the Indraprastha region was constantly being attacked by invaders. The places of worship were damaged. Five Devis decided to move out from that place and go to Himalayas.

Along with Veer Bhairav, Maa Aadi Shakti Bhuvneshwari, Maa Jwalpa, Maa Balsundri, Maa Baalkunwari, Maa Rajrajeshwari started for Kedarkhand.

They reached Najibabad which was an important trade center at that time. All the people of Garhwal region used to collect their household goods from Najibabad. The only modes of transport at that time were horses. A group of people from Sainar were also there to get household items for them and their fellow villagers.

Enroute the Devis reached Najibabad and Maa Bhuvneshwari was very tired. She entered in a sac full of salt as a small stone (Matralinga). Incidently that sac was purchased by Bhavan Singh Negi resident of Sainar village in east Maniyarsuin Pauri.from the trader named Kallu Mian.

The caravan passed through Kotdwar , Dogadda Fatehpur and Badel to reach Sangura where they made a halt. People from village gathered to help them with the goods they brought from Najibabad. Bhavan Singh Negi noticed that the salt of his sack contained a stone (originally the Matrilingh) weighing 5 Sers. He threw that stone and went to his village.

During his sleep he had a dream and Maan Bhuvneshwari told him that I love this place and I will stay over here. You threw away the Matrilingh.

Establish me here and construct my temple at this place were the Maan's order. The same night Maan Bhuvneshwari instructed Netramani Naithani of Naithana village to build a temple in whose land the Devi wanted to be established.

Some of us who have been fortunate to visit that area can understand why Devi chose that place.It is impossible to explain the serenity of that location in words. On one end of the hill you have Narad Ganga flowing vey quietly as if just trying to touch feet of Maan Bhuvneshwari without disturbing her. On the other end you have lush green fields . Such topography is very rare in Hills. The entire region is sorrounded by hills having typical Himalayan vegetation.

The nearest airport is Jolly Grant in Dehradun. The nearest Railway station is Kotdwara. Its two hour drive to the temple from Kotdwara. The temple is well connected by road. Regular bus and taxi services are available from Kotdwar to Satpuli from where taxi and buses are available to the temple. The temple is located about 20 kilometres from Satpuli.

Hotels are available in Satpuli. The trust has got a Dharam Shala at the temple site which provides free accommodation to the visitors.
