Shoolini Mata is the main deity of the place and the city derives its name from this Goddess. The temple is one of the most famous temples of Solan and attracts a lot of tourists and devotees. The Shoolini fair is held every year in the last week of June in the city and the fair starts from this temple. The idol of the Goddess is carried in a Palki (a small carriage lifted and carried by men) and a huge procession is carried out around the town.
The temple looks beautiful in the night when it is completely illuminated and is crowded on holidays and festivals.
