Tripuara Sundari Temple is situated in Naggar (the erstwhile capital of Kullu, founded by Raja Vishudhpal), and is a three-storeyed shrine with a colossal wooden structure. The temple resembles a pagoda and its architectural design follows the Hadimba Devi temple in Manali. There is a canopy with a pinnacle at the top, which is crowned by a chhatra. Images of various gods and goddesses can be witnessed in the Tripuara Sundari Temple. The temple is in close proximity to the Naggar Bus Station. However, some people are of the belief that the temple is in a shape of a web that was made by the Goddess after turning Herself into a spider. Raja Yashodhapal had constructed the Tripuara Sundari Temple. Sharhi yatra, a widely-accepted fair is held here in honour of the Goddess in the month of May. The temple consists of stone idols of Lord Ganesha, Lord Vishnu, Lord Brahma, Goddess Lakshmi, Lord Narayan and Shiva-Parvati. A 30cm idol of Tripura Rakshasa of Astdhatu (an assortment of eight metals) is also placed here.
