Legends regarding the Chandi devi temple, revolve around the demons of Shumba and Nishumba who wrecked havoc on the God's. Parvathi devi took the form of Chandi in answer to the prayers of the Gods. Shumba was smitten by the breathtaking beauty of Chandi. Angry that she refused to marry him, Shumbha sent his demon chiefs Chanda and Munda to kill her. They were annihilated by Goddess Chamunda who originated out of Chandika's wrath. Shumbha and Nishumbha then tried to kill Chandika but were killed by the goddess. Thereafter, Chandika is said to have rested for a short while at the top of Neel Parvat where a temple was built tho celebrate the divinity of Chandi Devi.

Atop the Neel Parvati, with the sprawling vista of Haridwar beneath is the Chandi devi temple. The white towers stand tall, visible form afar. The temple is decorated with red flags and red flowers.

Very near to the Chandi devi temple, there is the shrine for Anjana, mother of Hanuman.
