The temple is dedicated to Hingla Mata or Mother Goddess Bhavani, who is an extremely powerful deity who bestows good and well being to all her devotees. The shrine of the temple was actually a quaint & small establishment even few decades back till the devotional efforts of an ardent devotee, Satish Pandey. Over the past few years this place has attained some prolific popularity due to the newly revamped temple complex and recently erected dharmashala. The aesthetic and verdant environment around the temple atop the mountains of Kumaon range makes this temple, indeed a must visit one for the travellers and worshippers.
The Hingla Devi Temple is also known for the presence of wild deer, where wild deer come and freely roam in and around the temple complex without any fear. However, the rumours of this temple being a mysterious cellar of hidden treasure has made quite few headlines and is acting as a tourist magnet. But the rumours are not confers as of yet.
