India | Uttaranchal | Rishikesh


Kunjapuri is a charming picnic spot situated at an altitude of about 1645 m above sea level, in Uttaranchal. The place offers a panoramic view of the mighty Himalayan peaks to the north and Rishikesh, Haridwar and the Doon Valley to the south. Kunjapuri is about 27 km from Rishikesh.

Kunjapuri is believed to be one of the Sidddha Peetams established by Jagadguru Shankaracharya.

Major point of attraction here is an ancient temple dedicated to Kunjapuri Devi, situated on top of the hill. The vibrant annual fair, held on the occasion of Durga Ashtami, is a major draw.

Rishikesh Railway Station is the nearest railhead. Kunjapuri is well linked by road to Rishikesh.
