Sheetla Mata Temple, dedicated to the Hindu goddess of epidemic diseases, Sheetla, is located on a small hill known as called Rehoshra. The temple enshrines an old statue of Goddess Sheetla and devotees visit here in large numbers to offer their prayers. A big function is organised here on the 8th day of Navratra, a Hindu festival celebrating the triumph of good over evil. During this time people make sacrifices of lambs whose meat is distributed as ‘prashad’ or sacred food.
