Sheetla Devi Temple

Sheetla Devi Temple "Shakti Peeth”
 
The Sheetla Devi temple, located in Una district of Himachal Pradesh is dedicated to the Goddess Durga. It is close to the Chintpurni Devi temple in Bharwain. Several devotees throng the holy place to get the Goddess Sheetla Devi’s blessing. They often pray for peace and success in life.   The temple is one of the ninth Devi temples and is perched on top of the hill. The people of this place are warm, welcoming and helpful. 
 
The temple was built three centuries ago and has a million versions linked to its existence. One story stated that the two rich brothers, Padarath and Singha who were living in a small village in Gurgaon, owned large plots of land and were great worshippers of Mata Sheetla Devi. Singha was a good natured person who spent a lot of his time singing religious hymns in honour of the Goddess. 
Mata Devi happy and impressed with his devotion appeared before him and gave him the power to heal and relieve anyone suffering from pain.  He left all his riches and made a temple-like structure on the banks of the pond and began praying to the Goddess. He found the idol of the Goddess buried in the pond as he was collecting mud one day. He established the idol as a shrine which later becomes famous as the Mata Sheetla Devi Temple. 
 
There are so much more stories like this one. The temple is filled with devotees especially on Mondays and during the months of Chaitra that appear between March and April and during Shravan that are in July and August. Every kid first ‘Mundan’ takes place in this temple. A few strands of hair is placed in front of the deity to seek her blessings.
