Hatkeshwari Temple, Jubbal

Must Visit

Hatkeshwari Temple is a popular tourist destination of Jubbal. According to legend, this temple was built by the Pandavas, five sons of Pandu mentioned in the Hindu epic; the 'Mahabharata'. However, there also is speculation that the temple was built during the period between 800 and 1000 AD. This temple was later renovated by the Kings of Jubbal in the 19th century. Featuring a Pagoda, a multi-tiered tower-like structure, the temple has two stories.

Although primarily devoted to the Goddess Hatkeshwari, the temple premise also has five shrines of various other deities. The idol of the Goddess still remains in its original state as before the renovation. 'Aarti' is performed in the evening everyday for the benefit of the locals.
