Visiting Chhinnamastika aka Chintapurani Temple in Una (Himachal Pradesh)- Mahashakti Peetha


Chhinnamastika Temple:

Chintapurani temple or Chhinnamastika temple is a Mahashakti Peetha dedicated to the goddess Shakti, the goddess of creation. Hindus visit this place on many occasions, and specially on the occassion of Navratris the place is overcrowded.

Temple is surrounded by number of buildings and is at a congested place. A long line should be expected when you visit the place in the peak seasons.

Reaching Una: 

Reaching Una is quite easy, one can board a bus from Chandigarh, Jalandhar, Amritsar, Delhi, or from any other major city surrounding the place.  Trains are available to the planes of Punjab, Hariyana.
From Una, its about 50 km via road, and if you come from the Hoshiarpur, Punjab state, again its only 50 km via Ambota and Gagret. No need is there to reach Una in the latter case.
