Situated at a distance of 8 kilometres away from Dhanaulti, the Surkanda Devi Temple is dedicated to Goddess Parvati and is revered equally both by locals as well as tourists alike. Perched at a height of about 10,000 feet, the Surkanda Devi Temple offers a 360 degree view of the Garhwal region of the Himalayas, the Dehradun valley along with snow-covered peaks that add to the beauty of the temple. Revered as one of the Shakti piths, it is believed that Surkanda Devi Temple is the spot where the head of Sati felled when Lord Shiva in an immense fury started his tandav dance and is also a part of the popular Devi Darshan triangle that includes Chandrabadni and Kunjapuri. Surrounded with picturesque natural beauty, the Surkanda Devi Temple is easily accessible through a trek of about 1.5kms from the village of Kaddukhal on the Chamba and Dhanaulti road, or by trekking through the path amidst the forest from Dhanaulti. One can also drive towards the Surkanda Devi Temple from Dhanaulti towards Chamba. In case you are not fit enough to trek you can hire ponies or horses to reach the temple..
