Himachal Pradesh is quite aptly called "Dev Bhoomi" - Abode of the Gods. There are more than 2000 temples and religious places scattered all over the state. Many of these are quite well-known and attract thousands of devotees throughout the year.

 

The temple dedicated to Mata Chintpurni Devi (also known as Shri Chhinnamastika Devi) is located in a village of the same name in District Una, Himachal Pradesh.

Devotees have been visiting this Shakti peeth for centuries to pray at the lotus feet of Mata Shri Chhinnamastika Devi and Mata Shri Chintpurni Devi. 

They bring with them their worldly concerns and seek blessings from the Devi. 

Devotees believe that if you ask something of the Devi with an honest heart, your wish will be granted.
