Devotees come to this temple with a perpetual faith that the Goddess would bless them and fulfill all their wishes The Bajreshwari Devi temple is located in the middle of Kangra town.. It is one of the 52 Shaktipeeths. This temple was once known for its great wealth. So much so that it attracted the attention of invaders time and again. Mahmud of Ghazni was the first of these raider who carried away the treasures in the year 1009 AD. The temple was destroyed and a mosque came up in its place. Around three and a half decade later, the local king gained control over the area and the temple was reconstructed. The replica of the deity was reinstalled and gold and silver was filled again. Firoz Shah Tughlaq was the next one to ransack the temple. Later, it is also said that the great Mughal emperor Akbar visited this temple along with his deewan, Todar Mal. The emperor contributed a lot to restore the temple to its former grandeur. The earthquake of 1905, in recent times, completely destroyed the temple, however the activeness of the Kangra Restoration committee resulted in a new temple built that very same year.

Jai Maa Brijeshawri Devi...
