Whether you believe the temple to be a shaktipeeth or just a natural phenomenon, the temple is worth visiting. Avoid festival times as it will be crowded and the wait may be too long!

I visited this place last year. Very divine place to visit. This temple is one of the Hindu Pitha where Debi mata's parts fell. This is a Shakti Pith and felt very nice after my visit. Would love to visit again if i get a chance. A must see destination in Himachal kangra!

One of the famous Shakti Peeth with Maa established with "Jwala" or "Fire" on which the place is named after. Blessed to have visited this place. You can also climb up to "Tara Devi" Mandir and "Bhairov Nath" is 2KM away from here. We preferred to take a walk (bare foot) to explore the nature.

This temple is build on the local legend of small blue fires in the mountains that have been burning since ages. It has been associated with myth of Shiva burning Kama Deva. Not sure how really the flames are maintained. But local myths are always charming and temple is nice and well maintained.
