Uma Devi Temple



Uma Devi Temple is located at Uma Nagari in Anantnag District, Jammu and Kashmir. The place is also known as Brariangan. The presiding deity of the temple is Uma Bhagavati, Goddess Parvati.

The temple was constructed by Swami Syam Anand Ji. The shrine comprises 5 springs which make the form of the divine 'Omkara'. There are two springs which merge to form a single spring. Belief is that this spring signifies the communion of Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti.

A Maha Yaga is performed every year on the anniversary of Swami Sivananda in the month of Phusa. It is witnessed by thousands of devotees, who join in Maha Aarti during this occasion. The relics of the swami are still preserved at the Dhooni Sashib.

By road, Uma Nagari can be approached from Anantnag. The nearest airport is Srinagar Airport.
