Chhatarpur Temple Tours

10 Reviews
Chhatarpur Temple
Chhatarpur Temple is one of the largest such complexes in India, and it’s also relatively new by Indian standards, having been built in 1974. It’s dedicated to the goddess Katyayani, one of the nine forms of the warrior goddess Durga. The Hindu temple is made entirely of marble, and its intricately carved screens are especially impressive.

The Basics
Chhatarpur Temple is a mix of North Indian and South Indian temple architecture, making it an interesting place to visit in Delhi—a city full of Mughal tombs. While it honors Katyayani, other shrines throughout the 60-acre complex are dedicated to other important Hindu gods, like Shiva, Ganesha, Krishna, and Rama. Chhatarpur was considered the biggest temple in India until 2005, when Akshardham Temple—also in Delhi—was built. But, that doesn’t take away from Chhatarpur’s magnificence.

Visitors can explore Chhatarpur Temple on a variety of half- or full-day Delhi sightseeing tours. Select a private or group tour and travel on foot, by tuk tuk, or air-conditioned vehicle.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • A visit to Chhatarpur Temple is a must for architecture fans and history buffs.
  • The temple’s official name is the Shree Adya Katyayani Shaktipeeth Mandir, but it is known as Chhatarpur Mandir as it’s located in the Chhatarpur area of the city.
  • The collection of fees for profit is banned within the temple. Entrance is free, but there is a donation box.
  • The temple is near the popular Qutub Minar and the lesser-visited Mehrauli Archaeological Park, so combine these sites for a good day trip in this part of Delhi. 

How to Get There
Chhatarpur Temple is in South Delhi, and can be reached by car or taxi. Or, take the Delhi Metro to Chhatarpur station.

When to Get There
Chhatarpur Temple is busiest during October, when Navratri is celebrated. This 10-day festival celebrates the goddess Durga, so is an especially big deal at the temple. At this time, the temple is at its most beautiful, decorated with colored lights and full of happy worshippers.

Visiting the Katyayani Shrine
While the whole complex is dedicated to goddess Katyayani, the special shrine devoted to her is only open for worship during the full moon and the Navratri festival. Inside that shrine is a golden image of Katyayani wearing elaborate clothes and flower garlands. It’s a sight worth seeing, so time your visit for a full moon or Navratri festival, if possible.
