Kangra District Implements Traffic Regulation for Pilgrim Safety at Jwalamukhi Temple Road

Dharamsala (Arvind Sharma) 12/3/24

Kangra District Magistrate, Hemraj Bairwa, acting under the authority granted by Section 115 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, and responding to concerns raised by the residents of Jwalamukhi, has issued a directive to halt the operation of auto rickshaws and commercial vehicles on the Jwalamukhi Temple Road. This decision was made following a detailed assessment from the Sub-Divisional Magistrate, highlighting traffic safety concerns.

Bairwa explained that the road leading to Jwalamukhi Temple, particularly beyond the Peepal area, suffers from irregular widths and features steep slopes, significantly increasing the risk of traffic congestion and potential accidents. These conditions pose a hazard not just to the vehicles but more importantly, to the safety of the pilgrims visiting the sacred site. In light of these findings, the decision to regulate traffic aims to ensure the well-being and security of all pilgrims travelling to the temple.

The Jwalamukhi Temple Road, a crucial stretch of less than a kilometer, serves as the gateway for devotees travelling from the Dharamsala-Shimla National Highway to the revered temple. Jawalamukhi, distinguished as one of the eminent Shakti Peethas in the Kangra district, welcomes lakhs of pilgrims annually, drawn to its spiritual significance and divine aura. This sacred site stands among the district’s quintet of venerated temples, alongside Maa Brijreshwari, Maa Chintpurni, Maa Baglamukhi, and Maa Chamunda Devi. Each temple has its unique allure, drawing devotees from across the nation to seek blessings and partake in the serene and spiritually uplifting environment of Kangra’s divine landscape.
