Hatu Temple – The Temple Of Ravana’s Wife Madodari Where Goat Sacrifice Is Still Practised

Updated on 21 December, 2019 at 3:27 pm By

Surrounded by dense forests, Hatu Peak is the highest summit in the Shimla/Narkanda area of Himachal Pradesh. It is also the highest motorable peak in the region, until winter sets in, at which point it becomes cut off from the rest of the world.

At the top of the peak, a small wooden temple, Hatu Temple, humbly hides how rooted a part it played in the ‘Ramayana’ as is it believed to be the temple of Mandodari, the wife of Ravana.

From the temple you can get a clear view of the seemingly-unending Himalayan ranges, thick forests and fruit orchards. The walls of the temple are made of both wood and stone. The pillars have detailed and intricate woodwork on them; and the images are varied – from flowers to dragons.

On the first Sunday of Jyeshtha, devotees throng Hatu Temple. Goats are sacrificed near the temple in keeping with old rituals.
