Jhula Devi Temple In Ranikhet

Located at a distance of 7 kilometers from Ranikhet, this temple is dedicated to Goddess Durga. Among the local people, she is popular as ‘Jhula Devi’. As per legend, the place was once overrun with wild animals that used to attack the villagers. The villagers then prayed to Goddess Durga for protection and one night the Goddess appeared before a shepherd and asked him to excavate her idol from a certain place. This temple was then built where her idol was found.

Pilgrims come to this temple to make a wish and when their wish is granted they hang a bell on the wall of the temple. Along with the bells dried coconut is also offered to the Goddess.
