Shree Bhimakali Temple is the prime center of attraction in Sarhan. This 800 year old shrine in the name of Durga Devi is a landmark destination in this hilly terrain. A marvel in terms of architecture the Bhimakali Temple, allures the devotees and the casual visitor alike with its graceful look and absolute divinity. Believed to be one of the Sakthi Peeths, this shrine presents a mix of Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu style structural designs. It has skewed slate tops, golden minarets, pagodas and an engraved silver flap.

The temple boasts of numerous legends and most popular version is associated with the great sage Brahamagiri. The apostles of this legend believe that the goddess first appeared in the wooden stick of the sage. Another myth is related with Goddess Sati’s self immolation and it is believed that her ear fell on here and thus it became a Sakthi Peeth. In 1943 a new building with heavy carvings and sculptural designs was erected by the side of the old shrine. The new building postulates the devi as a matured women and a virgin. The icon of the goddess as a virgin is placed at the top store of the new building. The temple also encompasses the idol of Parvathi who is depicted as the celestial partner of Lord Siva.

Temple became a hub of festivities and celebrations on the eve of Dussehra when thousand of devotees gather there to have a holy darshan of their beloved goddess. The temple complex also holds three temples of Narsinghji, Lord Raghunathji and Patal Bhairva Ji.
