Jhandewala Devi Mandir

Religious

Jhandewala Devi Mandir is a popular Hindu temple located in Karol Bagh, a bustling neighborhood in New Delhi, India. The temple is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Jhandewali, also known as Maa Aadi Shakti or Jhandewali Mata, who is believed to be an incarnation of the powerful goddess Durga.

The temple is known for its unique architecture, featuring intricate carvings and colorful paintings. It is a popular destination for both locals and tourists, who come to seek blessings and offer prayers to the goddess. The temple is especially crowded during the Navratri festival, a nine-day celebration dedicated to the goddess Durga, when devotees from all over the city come to pay their respects.

The legend behind the temple's origin dates back to the 18th century, when a farmer named Badri Das discovered a stone image of the goddess while plowing his fields. He built a small shrine to house the image, and over time, the shrine grew into the grand temple that we see today. The temple has undergone several renovations and expansions over the years, with the most recent renovation taking place in 2006.

One of the unique features of Jhandewala Devi Mandir is the giant bell that hangs outside the temple. Devotees believe that ringing the bell brings good luck and wards off evil spirits. The temple also has a large yagyashala, where sacred fire rituals are performed, and a spacious courtyard where devotees can sit and meditate.
