Chhatarpur Temple

Located in South Delhi, Chhatarpur Temple is one of the largest temple complexes in the country. Built in 1974, the temple complex was dedicated to the goddess Katyayani, a form of the warrior goddess Durga. Other shrines dotted throughout the white marble complex honor Shiva, Ganesh, Krishna and Rama.

Besides being credited as the second largest temple in India, Chhatarpur Temple is also known for its interesting blend of South and North Indian architecture. The 20 or so temples and shrines that make up the complex are surrounded by well manicured gardens.

Practical Info

While popular year round, the temple is at its busiest come October when devotees come here to celebrate Navratri, or “Nine Nights.” The 10-day festival celebrates the nine forms of the goddess Shakti, including Durga. During this period, the temple gets decorated with thousands of colorful lights, making the temple particularly beautiful during this period.
