Chattarpur Temple




Chattarpur Temple lies 4 kilometers beyond Qutub Minar in Mehrauli, Delhi. This Durga temple is surrounded by Shiva, Vishnu, Lakshmi and Ganesha temples . During the days of Durga Puja the temple is visited by a large number of devotees.

Chattarpur Temple is the seat of Goddess Durga, also known as Parvati or Lalitha, the wife of Lord Shiva. She is seen in many divine forms. The powerful forms are Durga and Kali. Goddess Parvati is the mirror of Prakriti (Nature) as well as Shakti (Strength)and the Mother of the universe. All the living beings of the Earth come from the Nature, hence she is known as Jagadamba.

Chattarpur Temple architecture follows the pattern of the South. It is built in white marble. The serene white stones evoke spirituality in the minds of the visitors. This is the architectural style that emerged in the Dravida Desam. The Vimana and the Gopurams are typical to the Southern style.

The Gopuram in the Chattarpur Temple has two stories that has been separated by a horizontal moulding. The Prakara or the external wall, encompasses the chief shrine as well as the rest of the shrines which are smaller.

The Chattarpur Temple has an extension over a vast area in a very peaceful environment. The temple provides a notable evidence of contemporary temple architecture that shows off extensive works of marbles.

The best time to visit the Chattarpur Temple is during the 'Navaratri', auspicious days of the Hindus, when they offer pujas to Goddess Durga . There is a great festival in the Temple during these days.
