Jwalaji temple

Jwala Ji Temple

Jwala Ji is a Hindu Goddess. Alternative spelling and names for Jwala Ji include Jvala Ji, Jwala Devi and Jwalamukhi Ji. The physical menifestation of Jwala Ji is always a set of flames burning off natural gas and the term Jwala means flame.

Jai Jwala Maa the best known Jwala Ji shrine is located in the lower Himalayas< in JawalaMukhi town of the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh state of india, about 55 kilometers from the larger town of Dharamsala. The temple style is typical of Jwala Ji shrines, four cornered, with a small dome on the top and square central pit of hollowed stone inside where the main flame burns endlessly. An annual fair is held in the environs of the temple every July/August months Navratras.

Jwalaji (flame) or Jwala Mukhi (flame mouth) is probably the most ancient temple discussed here besides Vaishno Devi. It is mentioned in the Mahabharata and other scriptures. There is a natural cave where eternal flames continue to burn. Some say there are seven or nine flames for the seven divine sisters or the nine Durgas. It is here that Sati's tongue fell which can now be seen in the form of flame.

The popular place of pilgrimage is accessible from Kangra. The ancient temple, built aganst a wooden spur, has a dome that was glided by Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Pilgrims consider an eternally burning flame emanting from a hollow rock in the sanctum to be a manifestation of goddess Devi. It is one of the Shaktipeeth. The goddess is manifest here as tiny blue flames and worshiped as such.

The Legend

A cowherd found that one of his cows has always without milk. He followed the cow to find out the cause. He saw a girl come out of the forest, drink the cows milk, and then disappear in a flash of light. The cowherd went to the king and told him the story. The king was aware of the legend that Sati's tongue had falled in this area. The king tried, without success, to find that sacred spot. Again some years later, the cowherd went to the king that he had seen a flame burning in the mountains. The king found the spot and had darshan (vision) of the holy flame. He built a temple there and arranged for priests to enguage in a regular worship. It is believed that the Pandavas came later and renovated the temple.

It was Dhyanu Bhagar who spread Devi Mata's name. He lived at the time of Mughal Emperor Akbar. Dhyanu Bhagat was passing through Delhi with a group of pilgrims on their way to jwalaJi. Akbar summoned him to his court to inquire into the nature of their Goddess. Dhyanu Bhagat told him She is all powerful and answers the prayers of her devotees.

To test Her power Akbar cut off the head of Dhyanu's horse ordering him to have the Goddess put it back. Dhyanu went to JwalaJi and prayed day and night to no avail. Out of desperation he cut of his own head and offered it to Devi Ma. She then appeared to him riding a lion. She reconnected both his head and that of the horse. Devi Ma also offered Dhyanu Bhagat a boon. He requested that it should not be difficult for pilgrims to show their devotion. Mata said that in the future if someone offered a coconut she would accept it as if they had offered their own head. To this day people continue to offer coconuts to the Goddess in her temples all over the world.
