Goddess Kali has many forms. One of them is the fearsome reincarnation of her, Shyamala. However, it is this form only that has given Shimla its name. Considering such significance, the famous hill station of Shimla boasts of its well-deserved temple of Goddess Kali in the Jakhu hills. Dedicated to Shyamala, the Kalibari temple is a prominent religious place in India, and you should never miss it under any circumstances on a Shimla tour.
It was brought to its original location by the British—the Kali Bari temple created in the first half of the 18th century. For the pilgrims to worship, the temple complex houses a wooden image of Goddess Kali in the form of Shyamala. The sight of the heavy influx of devotees in the Kali Bari temple is undoubtedly divine. Auspicious occasions like Navaratri and Durga Puja are the best time to visit and if you are planning then you must check our Shimla Tour Package.
