about chattarpur temple

Popularly named after its location, Shri Adhya Katyani Shakti Peeth Mandir or Chattarpur Temple is the 2nd largest temple complex in India, after Akshardham temple, also situated in Delhi. The presiding deity of the temple is Goddess Durga in her 6th avatar (form), Goddess Katyayani, from amongst the nine forms manifested by her, known as Navadurga. Created in 1974 by Baba Sant Nagpal Ji, the temple is built entirely out of marble. Riding a lion and holding the glorious Chandrahasa (sword) in her hand, Goddess Katyayani is associated with the fierce form of Shakti (warrior goddess) and is one of the more widely revered and worshipped forms of Goddess Durga across India. 

The temple's architectural style is rooted in the architectural pattern and technique of South Indian temples, particularly those built by the Cholas and Chalukyas. There is a total of 20 temples, large and small, spread over the temple complex dedicated to, apart from Goddess Katyayani, Goddess Laxmi, Lord Krishna, Lord Shiva and Lord Ganesha. Within the main temple lies the shrine of Goddess Katyayani, but it is open to devotees only during the Navratri season, a bi-annual affair. The room next to the main shrine is adorned with tables and chairs made of silver, while the Shayan Kaksh (bedroom) has a bed and table also made of silver.

There is a prayer hall leading from the shrine where prayers, religious songs, and discourses are held on a regular basis. A museum within the complex has been dedicated to Baba Sant Nagpal, the temple's creator. Given the temple's presiding deity is Goddess Katyayini, festivals of Durga Puja and Navratri bring a sea of devotees clambering to get a glimpse and darshan of the Goddess.
