The sacred abode of Jagannathi devi, this temple is believed to have been constructed 1500 years ago. The deity in the temple is also known as Bhuweneshawari, who is considered as the sister of Lord Vishnu. The walls of the temple are carved with the images of Durga and the temple as such reflects the local architecture.

Like all other temples in India, this beautiful shrine is also linked with a legend. It is said that once a shepherd boy accidentally noticed that two girls danced to the tune of his magical flute and he caught hold of one among them. The goddess revealed her identity and agreed to settle in the village at Bekhli.

The Jagannathi Devi Temple or the Bekhli Temple is perched at an altitude of 1800 meter. The 90 minutes ascend to the top is rewarded with the panoramic views of the surroundings and the holy dharshan of the gorgeous deity. The idols in the shrine show Rajasthani and Gaddi tribal influences.
