Devi Dol Temple

Lord Shiva is worshiped here and the main deity of the temple is the Goddess Mahisamardini. The goddess is represented with slender waist, broad breasts, ten hands, and holding different weapons in each hand. She is seen placing her right foot on the lion, and pressing the shoulder of the buffalodemon with her left. She pierces the tridentthrough the body of the demon, and has fastened his arm with a noose. To put her weight on the Asura, the goddess is slightly bent to the left. The lion is also represented attacking the demon.


Specialty

The temple has sculptural representations belonging to the three sects of Hindus, Saivism, Vaisnavism and Saktism. At the foot of the hill and covering the extensive area are found a good number of Siva Lingas cut out of granite stone. As a local tradition has it, there were about 99,999 lingas and these were established with a view to make this town a second Kasi.

How to reach: Taxis and tempos are available to reach the temple at an easy proximity.
