Jwalamukhi Temple, Kangra



Jwalamukhi Temple, Kangra ( Himachal Pradesh)

Jwalamukhi Temple pictorial cancellation shown above  is the third and last permanent pictorial cancellation of Himachal Pradesh, being provided at Jwala Mukhi, Kangra ( Himachal Pradesh). The other two which I had  posted earlier on this blog are Monal from Shimla and Hidimba Temple, Manali.

Note : The place of the pictorial cancellation is not proper on this postcard it should have been on the stamp place.


The special cover on Jwalamukhi Temple  was recently issued during KANGRAPEX 2013, Dharamshala.


Jwalamukhi is famous temple temple, 30 km south of Kangra valley of the goddess Jwalamukhi with flaming mouth. In this temple there is a copper pipe through which natural gas comes out and the priest of the temple lights this. This flame is worshiped as a manifestation of the goddess Jwalamukhi. The nine flames have been named after goddesses - Mahakali, Unpurna, Chandi, Hinglaj, Bindhya Basni, Maha Lakshmi, Saraswati, Ambika and Anji Devi, continuously burning without any fuel, or assistance, may be seen erupting from a rock side. Now housed in the shape of nature is worshipped as a goddess, known as Jwalamukhi.
