This unique temple, also referred as Jawalaji, does not have an idol instead there are nine flames burning continuously from the fissures in the temple. Since the Goddess is worshipped in the form of celestial flame she is known as Jawalamukhi. Nobody has been able to recognize the fuel source of the sacred flame.

Punjab, , Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and other parts of Chandigarh arrive at Jawalamukhi temple during the Chaitra Navratri mela or Vasant Navratri festival. India
Chaitra Navratri is the Durga Puja during the spring season. It is observed mainly in
