Temples And Legends of Himachal Pradesh

Introduction

Mr. F. Cunningham's District Gazetteer of Kangra has the following account of the Bajreshwari temple in kangra:-

"'The temple of Bajreshwari orVagreshwari Devi at Kangra is - perhaps the most famous in this district. It is said to have been founded by the divinity of that name at a famous Ashwamedh or horsesacrifice, which was held on the spot. The famous Mehmood of Ghazni is said to have invaded the district and destroyed the temple, building a mosque on its ruins.

It was, however, restored and is said to have been visited by Akbar together with his celebrated Diwan Todar Mal. There are some temples in the vicinity which, are, said to have owed their origin to Todar Mal. Finally, Maharaja Ranjit Singh visited and under his orders the domes of the temples here and at Jawalamukhi were guilded. Subsequently devotees from Amritsar subscribed together and presented the temple with marble floor."
