Haridwar. The sacred ancient mythological wandering journey of Juna Akhara reached Chakodi in its final phase under the leadership of Srimanta Premagiri Maharaj and founder of the Satkarma Mission, Srimanta Virendrananda to visit the mythical pilgrimage Haat Kali temple of Gangolihat. Here Mahant Chetangiri and the scholarly priests of the temple worshiped the holy stick and saw Mother Kali. This mythological temple, known as Hatkalika, is described in the Manaskhand of Skandpuran.
This Hatkalika temple described in Darukavan Gangolihat of Manas Khand was reestablished by Adya Jagadguru Shankaracharya during the Kumaon tour in the sixth century. Priest Rawal Bhim Singh narrates an incident related to Hatkali temple. According to him, during the Second World War 1939 to 1945, when the Indian Army started sinking in the sea, the military officers asked the soldiers to remember their God. As the troops of Kumaon cheered, the ship came ashore, since then the soldiers of the Kumaon Regiment of the Indian Army do not go to the battle without visiting the Haat Kali temple.
The idol of Maa Kali installed in this temple has also been provided by the Kumaon Regiment. The holy stick was also supposed to visit the mythological shrine Patal Bhubaneswar, but due to the Corona epidemic, darshan was banned here. For this reason, after praying from the entrance itself, the holy stick Bageshwar left for the night rest.
