Brahmani Mata temple

Brahmani Mata temple complex is at the top of the ridge, 4km away from the Bharmour. The place is mainly known for Goddess Brahmani Mata. According to a local legend and people believe that the Bharmour was called Brahmpura after Brahmani Devi. When Lord Shiva went to Manimahesh Kailash granted a boon to goddess Brahmani Devi that all persons intending to go on pilgrimage to Manimahesh must have a dip in their holy pool. Failing this, their pilgrimage would not be acceptable to Lord Shiva.

That’s by every visitor firstly take bath in Brahmani’s holy pool before Manimahesh Lake. Brahmani holy pool is about 4 * 4 meter below Brahmani’s cave. Goddess Brahmani had stolen this holy water from Lord Sandhola Naag which is another side of the ridge. Seven water streams are coming from the bottom of cave which are presently serving water supply facility to Bharmour and running many flourmills. The place is mountainous with aesthetic natural beauty and gives glorious view of beautiful Bharmour.

Brahmani Devi is also known with the name of Bharmani Devi, is the patron Goddess of Bharmaur and is located 4 km from Bharmaur, on a ridge among the forest and has a facinating view of Budhal valley. According to a legend Goddess was residing in the Bharmaur Chaurasi, before the advent of pilgrims. When Lord Shiva first appear in Bharmaur, the Goddess shifted her seat to the hill top known as Bharmani. The Lord Shiva granted a boon to Brahamani Devi that all persons intending to go on pilgrimage to Manimahesh must have a dip in Brahmani pool.

Failing this, their pilgrimage would not be acceptable to Lord Shiva. Since then it is a ritual to visit Bharmani Devi, before the journey to Manimahesh. In Shaktidharmic Hinduism, Brahmani (also known as Brahmi and Brahmayi) is a kind and benevolent aspect of Devi, the Divine mother. Brahmani is associated with the Hindu creator god, Brahma as His Shakti (power). She is one of the seven Mother Goddesses called Matrikas and a form of Parvati
