About 1.5 kms. from Banganga and at an altitude of 3380 feet is Charan Paduka, the place where the imprints of Mata's pious feet are believed to be imprinted on a rock slab. The Darshans at Charan Paduka do not take more than a few minutes on a normal day. One pays obeisance at the footprints of Mata engraved on a rock slab and proceeds further. Symbolically, it means touching the feet of Mata and seeking Her blessings at the start of the journey.
 
A medical unit of the Shrine Board is also located here, which is equipped with all necessary medical facilities and is attended by trained medical staff. According to the mythological tales, Goddess Durga made a halt at the site when Bhairav Nath was chasing her. The site of holy footprints is one of the highlights of the destination.
