The demons ‘Chand” and “Mund” were
by Maiya here, hence known as “Chamunda”.
Chamundadevi Mandir is seven hundred years
old; build by Meri Maiya bhakt
(still unknown) from the village, who
was asked by Meri Maiya Herself in his
dream to fetch the idol across Ban Ganga
and place it in the temple over
"Holy Meri Maiya Pindi" and worship HER.
Meri Maiya Mandir is a holy shrine of 'Shiva
and Shakti' and is known as
'Chamunda Nandikeshwar Dham'. Meri Maiya
Mandir is a seat of spirituality
since ancient times and is situated on
the bank of Ban-Ganga. Meri Maiya
Mandir is surrounded by natural beauty,
peace and bliss and as such
a natural refuge for saints and meditators
since time immemorial.
This in only Meri Maiya Mandir where Meri
Maiya Puja and Cremation of
Dead body is done at the same place. Here
the great Lord 'Ashutosh
Shiv Shankar' in the form of death, destruction
and devourer is sitting with Meri Maiya
Chamundadevi. Ancestoral worship (Shradha
Ceremony) is also performed here.
After taking a dip in Ban Ganga it is
auspicious to listen or recite 'Shat Chandi' Path
