Kalkaji Mandir is a Hindu temple, dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Kali. The temple is the abode of Goddess Kalika, popularly known as Maa Kaali, an avatar of Goddess Durga. It is also called 'Jayanti Peetha' or 'Manokamna Siddha Peetha which literally means that all the desires of the devotees are fulfilled here by the deity Goddess Kalika.

This shrine to Kali is an antique one. It was built in 1764 AD but the present structure was constructed in the early 20th century. It is believed that the Pandavas and Kauravas had worshipped here.

The modern temple is 8 sided structure made up of marble and black pumice stones. The black stone denotes goddess kali. Thousands of devotees visit the Kalka Ji temple every year with utmost devotion. But the peak point is during the Navratri festival when the temple is blooming with celebrations.
