In Kalimath shrine the goddess is loved as an appearance of the MaaKali, the other portion of Bhagwaan Shiva.

Goddess Dhari Devi is worshiped in an open space, there is no rooftop where the idol is kept. The purpose for this is that individuals accept that Dhari Devi likes to sit in the open space. Dhari Devi is considered as an Avatar of Kali Mata.

Because of the Srinagar Hydel Project in the Alaknanda river, Dhari Devi Temple was relocated from its original site. 

Before the partition of Uttar Pradesh state, the whole region of Uttarakhand was a part of Uttar Pradesh. The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh was Mulayam Singh Yadav at that time. The government proposed a plan to build a dam on the Alaknanda river and did a survey. Local residents and many other leaders opposed this construction.

But the plan got finalised and later the construction of the dam started. When there was no dam on the river, devotees had to walk almost 600 meters from the road to the temple. But after the construction of the dam, the government had to lift the temple few meters. Now the devotees have to walk only 200 meters from the road to reach the temple.
