There are nine different flames within the Jwalamukhi temple and each signifies something different. It is said that centuries ago, a cowherd saw the flames for the first time and Raja Bhumi Chandra, the ruler of the area had the original temple built. The Mughal emperor Akbar installed a gold parasol and Maharaja Ranjit Singh had the dome gilded. Just above the Devi’s temple is the shrine of Bab Gorakhnath and across the courtyard is her ‘bed-chamber’.
