The Temples of Mahabharata: Kalkaji Mandir

This temple dedicated to Goddess Kali is located in the South Delhi area of Kalkaji, a name derived from the temple itself. It is believed that the image of Goddess Kali in this shrine is self-manifested and is as old as the Satya Yuga time.


One of the oldest temples in the country, it is also called ‘Manokamna Siddha Peetha’ which literally translates to Shrine of fulfilment. The temple is at its busiest most during Navratri every year; a nine-day festival, when many visit to pray to Goddess Durga.

The temple is constructed of bricks and has been finished with marbles. A verandah in the temple has two tigers made of red sandstone sitting on a marble pedestal. Also keep an eye out for Urdu inscriptions on the walls of the temple.
