Sheetla Mata Temple shaktipith is situated at Dhanop. Dhanop is a little village near Bhilwara with only the Sheetla Mata Temple to boast of. But it makes for an interesting visit as it’s the most colourful temple around. The walls and pillars are bright red while the roof is sparkling white. The floor is of marble, and a checkered one at that. In the complex is a neem (Azadirachta indica) tree which looks more like a Christmas tree. This is because of the hundreds of colourful pieces of cloth which devotees have tied around its branches in the belief that it will fulfill their wishes.
Sheetla Mata shaktipith at Dhanop is believed to be about 1100 years old. Local tradition tells that in vikram samvat 1150 Raja Dhundhmar camped here on navaratra with his army while coming from Hadauti. He worshiped the goddess here.
