The name Kheer is derived from rice pudding which is offered by devotees in the spring to show their love to the Goddess. It is situated at a distance of 14 miles away from East Srinagar near Tula Mula village. The shrine lies amidst spring whose color is believed to be changed magically. The large and beautiful floor area of stones in the temple has some chinar trees beneath which devotees sit or sleep.
This temple has its own significance among Kashmiri Hindus and Kashmiri Pandits. The black or any dark color of the spring is marked with an upcoming auspicious day for Kashmir. The eighth day of the full moon in May is a special day for the devotees of Ragnya Devi. They keep fast, wear colorful dress and gather at the shrine in huge numbers. The festivals like Shikla Paksh Ashtami and Jesht Ashtami are celebrated at this holy place by Hindus.
