History of Kheer Bhavani Temple

Kheer Bhawani temple is of significant religious importance. Devotees offer prayers to Ma Bhawani on a regular basis. A story is famous about this temple. It is believed that anyone reading or hearing this story is blessed by Devi Ma and his wishes come true.
This temple is related to ancient times and according to a famous story, Lord Rama decided to visit Lanka to free Devi Sita from Ravana. This was during the time of Ramayana.
Lord Rama along with his army went to Lanka and the battle began. It is said that Devi Raghenya resided in Lanka during that period. When she saw Lord Hanuman, she told him that her time in Lanka was over and she needed to get out.
She asked Lord Hanuman to carry her to the Kashmir region in the Himalayas where Ravana’s father, Saint Pultasya, resided. Hearing this, Lord Hanuman decided to carry Devi Raghenya to the Himalayas.
Devi Ma disguised herself as a rock and Lord Hanuman lifted her in his hands. He took her out of Lanka and went to the Himalayas where he started looking for an appropriate place for Devi Ma. Lord Hanuman saw this place and kept Devi Ma here who was in the form of a rock. Since then, Devi Ma started residing in the same place.
This place was neglected during the transition from ancient to medieval times. But then, Devi Raighenya appeared in front of a Kashmiri Pandit in the form of a snake. She took this Pandit to the place where she resided as a rock. Later, a temple was built in this place. An idol of Devi Ma is present inside this temple. This temple was renovated by King Pratap Singh in 1912 A.D.
An annual festival is celebrated by the temple on the occasion of Shukla Paksha Ashtami. On the particular day, devotees observe a fast and gather at the temple to pay their homage to the Goddess. Likewise, Jesht Ashtami (May-June) is another occasion, when people come from and near to have a glimpse of the Goddess. It is said that on this day, the spring changes its color with the blessings of the Goddess. The festival is concluded with 'Maha Yagna' to please Ragnya Devi.
