About Maa Jhandewali

To have the divine experience of Shri Aadi Shakti Maa Jhandewali's darshan, devotees can plan visit to her famous temple , located in Delhi. The name Jhandewalan was given during Shah Jahan's reign, due to the prayer flags or 'Jhandas' being offered. This ancient temple has a subterranean shrine as well as one on the ground level. Thousands of devotees converge for darshan or blessing, including the rich and the famous especially during the Navratras in spring and autumn

The upper level of the temple has divine idol of Mata Jhandewali. There are idols of other Gods also at the same level. At the ground level , the original idol of Jhandewali Mata is there. There is a history attached to this idol. It is believed that Badri Bhagat, one of the great devotee of matarani, dreamed of her and she told him about this idol. Thereafter the temple was constructed at the same place.
