Laxman siddh temple Dehradun

Located amidst dense Lachhiwala forest, Laxman  Siddh has got a charm and solitude that can take you away from all the worries of an everyday life. It's built in a way that it's hidden from the probing eyes of wanderers and myths have it that centuries ago, Laxmana underwent penance for killing Ravana and meditated here for years. The solitude of the place certainly makes for the perfect ambiance to lose oneself in meditation.  Every Sunday a fair is held where thousands of disciples gather to pay their respects at the shrine in the temple. Devotees from far and wide visit the fair, though the crowd usually remains low during weekdays. Wild cries of animals and birds can often be heard at the temple.
