Maa Bhagwati Tara Devi


Maa Bhagwati Tara Devi” temple is located on Tarav Parvat in the western side of shimla Town  about 15 Km from Shimla situated by the side of Kalka- Shimla National Highway near Shoghi.The history of this temple dates back to about 250 years  when this temple was built here.  There is a belief that the goddess Tara was brought  to Himachal Pradesh all the  way from the eastern state  of Bengal .  Hundreds of years ago a king from the Sen Dynasty  visited this area.  This king had brought  his family deity  in the form of a small gold Idol encased in a  locket  which he always wore around his upper arm.  For many years the idol remained encased   but in the 96th generation of sen dynasty , Raja Bhupendra Sen one day had an unusual  experience while  hunting in the  dense forest  of Juggar , near by the present  temple, where he had a vision  of his holy family deity goddess  :”Maa Tara” along with her Dwarpal  Bhairav and Hanuman Ji , who expressed her  keen desire to be unveiled before the  people.
