 Chandrabadani temple is located in Tehri Garhwal. Chandrabadani temple is dedicated to the goddess of power.According to the legends Lord Shiva while carrying torso of his consort Sati, accidentally dropped it here and her weapons got scattered all around the place. Thus, even today huge number of iron trishuls (tridents) and some old statue can be seen lying around the revered temple of Chandrabadani.

Apart from the temple, this place offers breathtaking views of snow capped Himalayan peaks like Kedarnath, Badrinath and so on.a heavy snow falls here every year. this is just like a heaven.
