Chhatarpur Temple

“Excellent work of architecture”

Shri Adhya Katyani Shakti Peeth Mandir is popularly known as Chhatarpur Temple since it is located in a down town area in south of Delhi - Chhatarpur. This is the second largest temple complex in India, and is dedicated to Goddess, Katyayani.

The temple was established in 1974, by Baba Sant Nagpal ji, who died in 1998. His samadhi shrine lies in the premises of the Shiv-Gauri Nageshwar Mandir within the temple complex. This temple was considered as the biggest temple in India and second largest in the world, before the Akshardham Temple was created in 2005 in Delhi. This temple is totally constructed from marble and on all the facets there is jaali (perforated stone or latticed screen) work. This temple demonstrates aura of our age old heritage and sculpture.

Chhatarpur Temple has now become a pilgrimage Centre of renown, visited by devotees from all parts of the country. The Mandir precincts offer to the visitors exquisite architecture, a blend of North and South. The enthralling statues of the deities like Maa Katyayani, Maa Mahishasurmardini, Ram-Darbar, Radha-Krishna, Shiv-Parvati, Laxmiji, Ganeshji, Hanumanji etc make one standstill in adoration with extreme admiration of the presence of the divine which is more eloquent than silent. The special celebrations during Navratras, Mahashivratri and Janmashtami make the temple abuzz with religious fervour to the delight of the devotees congregating in hundreds and thousands. The lungar Prasad distributed in both the Navratras to approximately a lakh visitors daily is a rare sight to see and believe.

Shree Adya Katyayani Shaktipeeth Mandir Trust right since the days of Baba Nagpalji is controlling the affairs of the Mandir. Apart from the Mandirs, Shree Adya Katyayani Shaktipeeth Mandir Trust is also engaged in social services in the form of Medical & Diagnostic Centre, School, Gurukul, Vocational Training Centre etc. Offerings to a number of institutions like Kushtrog Ashram, Dargah of Nizamuddin Aulia, Shrines at Bharthari etc are sent regularly by the Trust keeping in line with the tradition established by Babaji who was a humanist to the core. The Trust is committed to pursue the ideals preached and practiced by Baba Nagpal himself and the increasing popularity of the Mandir day in and day out has kept it inspired to work more and more in the interest of devotees and public at large.
