The clangs of these bells are heard till a very long distance. According to a mythology, this temple was built to seek Durga’s protection for the wild animals in the place. The idol of Goddess Durga is said to have been excavated by a shepherd from a particular spot after being guided so by the goddess herself in his dream. This temple is made on the same spot from where this idol was obtained. A Rama Mandir dedicated to Lord Rama also resides atop this Jhoola Temple, on the Kumaon Hill.
