Himachal’s Mata Chintpurni shrine goes online!

Shimla: Now you can perform prayers and give offerings in Himachal Pradesh’s Mata Chintpurni shrine with just a click of a mouse.

Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh on Thursday launched a website of one of the busiest shrines in north India, which will allow devotees to participate in the daily ‘arti’ – both in the morning and evening – and could make offerings online.

The website is in Hindi, English and Punjabi languages for facilitating the pilgrims.

More than 40 lakh pilgrims last year visited Mata Chintpurni shrine, one of the richest in the state.

Other rich temple trusts include those of Naina Devi in Bilaspur, Baba Balak Nath in Hamirpur, Jwalaji, Chamunda Devi and Brajeshwari Devi in Kangra and Bhimakali and Hateshwari in Shimla.
