The Wishing-well Goddess

Situated on a small hill called the Bilwa Parvat in Haridwar stands the Wish Fulfilling Goddess, Maa Mansadevi Siddhpeeth. I stumbled upon this statue as I was making my way up to Rishikesh. This goddess is believed to fulfill your deepest wishes.

 

The legend states that the Goddess, Mansadevi was born from the mind of Rishi Kashyap and has three faces and five arms. When visiting her, the ritual is to take a thread and tie it around the tree to make your wish.

 

Once your wish has been fulfilled, however, the ritual also states one should return to the goddess to untie it!! As you can see from the image above and from where I tied my thread, the success rate of this is probably very low. If I do ever return I would be lucky enough to make a another wish, but not in trying to find the thread from the previous.
