The Wish Fulfilling Kalka Ji Temple in Delhi



*.¸¸.. WELCOME ..¸¸.*

|||BY RAAM|||
Location: Kalkaji, South Delhi
One of the dominant features of the
Indian heritage is the presence of
myriad temples all over the country.
India has no dearth of ancient temples
that hold utmost importance for the Hindus all over.
Our capital city also boasts of a number of ancient Hindu
temples that were constructed hundreds of years ago.
Talking about ancient temples in Delhi,
the first name that strikes my mind is that of Kalka Ji temple.
The temple is the abode of Goddess Kalka,
popularly known as Maa Kaali, an avatar of Goddess Durga.
The shrine of Goddess Kali is said to be the
self-manifestated one and dates back to the Satya-yug,
the time when the Goddess had
incarnated to kill the demon Raktbija.
Legend has it that Lord Krishna and the Panadavas
have worshipped the Goddess at this shrine
during the time of Mahabharata.
The temple is said to have built in 1764 A.D
but the present structure was constructed
in the early 20th century
with the contributions from the devotees.
The structure of the temple is made up of marble
and black pumice stones.
It is a twelve sided structure with a verandah
that encloses the main complex on all sides.
The black stone inside the structure
denotes Goddess Kali.
The temple complex is a simple structure
with hardly any ostentation.
There is an inn in the backyard,
also known as Kaali Dharamshala,
built specially for the convenience of the visitors.
Crores of devotees visit the Kalka Ji
temple every year with utmost devotion.
But the peak point is during the Navratri
festival when the temple is blooming with celebrations.
The entire complex is decked up like a bride
and a grand fair is organized at the temple.
The shrine is also popular as “Manokamna Siddha peetha”
meaning wish fulfilling shrine.
This shrine attracts visitors from all over the country,
some of whom come here to get their wishes fulfilled
and some just to meditate
and pray for the blessings of Maa Kaali.
