Chandrabadani is a mountain (2,277m above sea-level) on the border of tahsil Devaprayag and Pratapnagar. It is well known for the temple of Chandrabadni Devi, lying at the top of the mountain about 10 km. north of Kandi Khal, a place on the Devaprayag-Kirti Nagar. The place commands a beautiful view of the Surkanda, Kedarnath and Badrinath peaks. The temple is very small and contains a Shri-yantra carved out on a flat stone instead of any idol. The Chandrabadani Temple is dedicated to the Goddess of power. Apart from the temple, this place offers breathtaking views of snow-capped Himalayan peaks like Kedarnath, Badrinath and so on.
The legend says that the torso of Sati fell here and her weapons got scattered all around the place. Thus, even today huge number of iron trishuls (tridents) and some old statues can be seen lying around the revered temple of Chandrabadani. Traditionally, a cloth canopy is tied to the ceiling over this Shri-yantra once every year and the Brahman priest does it blindfolded.
The proper time for the visit is June to October. One should avoid visiting Chandrabadani Temple in the monsoon.
