Bamleshwari Temple, Chhattisgarh

Bamleshwari Temple or Bambleshwari is an important shrine of worship encompassing the Hindu philosophical beliefs. It is located in the newly formed state of Chhattisgarh that has been carved out of erstwhile Madhya Pradesh. Situated in Dongargarh in the Rajnandgaon district, it is well connected to communication and public transport from Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh as well as from other prominent places in the state such as iron and steel mammoth landmark towns of Bhillai and Durg. However, the Bamleshwari Temple has two shrines dedicated to the reigning goddess.

While the main shrine or the Badi Bamleshwari Temple, literally translating to the Big Bamleshwari Temple is constructed on a hilltop at an elevation of 1600 feet, on its foothills almost at a distance of 12 kilometres further lies another shrine dedicated to the same deity known as Choti Bamleshwari Temple or The Small Bamleshwari temple.

These temple shrines are equally popular among pilgrims and heretics as they are revered by thousands of devotees who flock to temple grounds and premises during the most auspicious Navratri festival in the Hindu pantheology. The temple on the hill top is accessible for tourists and visitors and devotees alike by rope way cable cars which are also a major draw as it is the only one of its kind in the state of Chhattisgarh. While devotees and pilgrims can also walk their way to the temple, the rope way cable car is an added attraction that brings in tourists and fun farers thronging to the temple site.
