Maya Devi Temple, Haridwar Reviews
Built in the 11th century, the Maya Devi temple is one of the oldest temples in India. The temple is dedicated to Hindu goddess Maya and is also one of the three Shaktipeeth located in the holy city of Haridwar. Goddess Maya is considered to be a form of Adi Shakti, who is believed to be the Goddess of divine power. Devotees of the Goddess visit in large numbers during Navratra and Kumbh Mela to take her blessings.
On top of a hill that can be reached by a rope way,this is said to be the place where Devi Durga had killed the Asura..the temple houses many small temples of variety of deities unless you reach the main temple with a sweet idol of mata sitting...the Prasad is puffed rice.
Maya Devi mandir is one of the most important temples in Haridwar, the other two being Chandi Devi temple and Mansa Devi Temple. Earlier Haridwar was called Mayapuri in reference to this deity. She is a three-headed and four-armed deity who is believed to be an incarnation of Shakti. It is believed that the heart and navel of goddess Sati fell here. Thus it is sometimes referred to as a Shakti Peeth.If you think my review is of help kindly click on like. Thanks!
Haridwar was known as Mayapur and Maya Devi is the Adhisthatri Devi of the city. The temple is next to Juna Akhada and has a very old Banyan tree under which is a living Dhuni. It is a big complex that acts as a resting place where anyone is welcome to rest. This is probably the most important place in Haridwar and definitely a must visit.
Goddess Maya is the Adhisthatri deity of Haridwar. It is a Shakti Peetha. Temple consists of murtis of goddesses Maya in the centre, Kali on the left, Kamakhya on the right. It is a very old temple and not in good shape. It is not on the main but in a small lane. but It is a must viist for all coming to Haridwar. Murti is very nice and I felt very nice and felt good at the temple.
