Among the four Sidh Peeth of the Dehradun, Madu Siddh temple is situated near the village of Aamwala. Madu Siddh Temple is at the very dense forest near the Nimi River. The Madu Siddha temple is at a calm place very far from the city life. You can reach there by two ways, one way is from Chakrata road via Premnagar and another via Kaulagarh road. Actually, Madu Sidh temple is a Lord Shiv temple where you can see the Swayambhu Shivling. This Swayambhu Shivling is worshiped here from Treta Yug. Local and nearby city devotees regularly visit this Madu Siddh temple.

History of Madu Siddh Mandir

In Treta period famous Saint Shri Atri Ji and Mata Shri Anasuiya lived. All three God Bramha, Vishnu and Mahesh who is known as Trinity, came to Earth for the testing of penance of Shri Atri Ji and Mata Shri Anasuiya. Trinity was very happy with the penance of them. They promise to born as her baby from his womb. Later Mata Shri Ansuiya gives birth a baby boy who was the form of Trinity. They named his son as Dattatreya. Dattatreya was very sharp minded, powerful, Bright. Lord Dattatreya gained knowledge from 24 Guru and became expert in all type skills. Dattatreya had many powers. Lord Dattatreya later became popular and famous as Guru Dattatreya Ji.

Lord Dattatreya had 9 'Naths' and 84 disciples. They trained all of them for human welfare. As time passed Lord Dattatreya became old and called all his disciples. Lord Dattatreya said to all disciples to do worship of Lord Shiv and get the powers from them. Lord Dattatreya blessed all disciples to get success in life and doing human welfare. All these 84 disciples went in all over in India for human welfare and started the Tapasya. The places where all these 84 disciples of Lord Dattatreya done Tapasya, later famous as Siddh Peeth.

Four disciples Laxman, Manak, Kalu, and Madu Ji of Lord Dattatreya came in Dehradun of North India. They did hard penance and make happy to Lord Shiv. Lord Shiva came and give them the blessing to go to heaven. The places where Lord Dattatreya disciples did penance and left her body, now famous as Siddh Peeths in Dehradun.

Best Time to Visit Madu Siddh Mandir

Madu Sidh Temple opens daily so you can go there any day in a week. But as per the weather of Dehradun, I will suggest going there from February to June months. During rainy season going there is not advisable. On the Hindus holy day Vasant Panchami there is a huge fair organized at the Madu Siddh temple. So going there at that time will be best. The best time to visit the temples is morning so you can go to Madu Siddh temple in the morning.
