DEVBANDH - DURGA PEST

Markandeya Purana embodies an elaborate account of this famous temple along with Sakambari temple lying close by This temple like the Sakambari mandir is endowed with and beautified by natural scenery on all sides. Its location amidst hills and valleys raises its glory and attracts Nature lovers addition to theists. This place was originally called Devivan standing for forest. After the advent of Muslims and their invasion and occupation. it is called Devibandh.

A clear case of wrong interpretation and poor comprehension. This modest temple though adorned with, modest sculpture only. it is surrounded by enchanting scenic beauty that lulls the weary travellers soon after reaching it. There is a tank in front of the temple going by the name of Devikund. And as as the word goes it is filled with Ganges water yearly once. The endowments and donations of the temple are ever flowing and are quite adequate to maintain many institutions for public advancement. The Devi kund Sanskrit Vidyalaya run by the temple is imparting Vedic lore by expert teachers. There are other temples in this area catering to devotees belonging to all sects. It is a temple town throbbing with religious activities throughout the year.

The yearly festival falls on Chaitrra sukla Chaturdasi and lasts for 10 days, and during this occasion devotees visit in their thousands and involve themselves in several religious services and redeem their vows with great devotional favour. 

It lies close to Saharanpur, accessible by four wheelers and train too.
