Mysterious Himachal

Land of God & Faith

Kunzum Devi – Protector of Kunzum Pass & Travelers

Kunzum Pass at a height of around 14,900 feet which connects Spiti valley with Lahul & Kullu valleys. It is one of India’s highest motorable mountain Pass and is one of the routes to Kaza. Kunzum La gives unbelievable 360-degree sight of the Bara-Shigri Glacier which is the 2nd longest glacier on the planet, a jaw-dropping panorama of the Chandrabhaga Range and also a stunning sight of the Spiti valley.

Kunzum Devi Temple on the deserted Kunzum pass at an elevation of 14,900 feet. It is devoted to Goddess Durga (Kunzum Devi) and every vehicle that goes to the pass needs to take a whole roundabout of the temple to make certain security for the rest of their trip. It is stated if you do not take it, you may enter into problem. Another interesting belief of the locals pertaining to the holy place is that there sits a decider of fate inside this temple. There is an upright stone the dimension of our clenched fists that is enclosed in a cave inside the temple.

The rock is venerated and also has actually been stated to inform the visitor if he/she is a saint or a sinner. You rise to the rock as well as stick a coin to the rock. If the coin sticks, you are a saint and if it does not you are sinner. There were a lot of coins adhered to the rock however mine fell short to stick. Yes, God is watching whatever!
