Alopi Devi Mandir
Alopi Devi Temple in Allahabad is a famous Hindu Pilgrimage which is located in Alopi Bagh in the Indian states of Uttar- Pradesh. This distinguished Temple is positioned very close to the sacred Sangam Ghats where three holy Rivers- Ganges, Saraswati and Yamuna meet. Kumbh Mela is observed every four years to pay homage to god and to get blessings in bulk. Inside the main sanctum- sanctorum, there is no idol placed; only a Palki (Wooden Carriage )or the Doli is fixed in the centre of the Temple Dome.
As per the beliefs, during Sati’s immolation the
last part fell at this divine location thereby named as "Alopi" where
disappearance was concluded hence the holiest of all. Navratri Festival is
celebrated for 9 days in this Temple.
