ARANYA DEVI

So far as the architecture is concerned, the whole temple has been reconstructed on modern lines. Marble and mosaic work is visible inside the temple. There is no authentic evidence to give us the exact date of the temple.

The priest of the temple is of the Vaishnava sect. His name is Harihar Pandey. This temple is his ancestral property. It is not under any trust. About 500 visitors come here daily to offer prayer. Visitors generally bring peda, mukundana, mala (garland) and fruits to offer to the Devi. The priest of the temple takes some quantity of the prasad and returns the rest to the devotees and marks their foreheads with rori (red powder). The devotees also give some money to the priest, as dakshina.

Regarding the routine of the rituals, the deity is daily bathed morning and evening and this is followed by offerings of prasad (fruits and sweatmeats etc.) and arti with reciting of hymns by the priest, accompanied with ringing of bells and drums.
