  DELHI - KALIKA TEMPLE

Another visit-worthy Sakti temple is called Kalika temple and the original name of the Goddess was Ramachandi Kali. This Mother appearing before Arjun blessed him success, when prayed at the instance of Sri Krishna before the Kurukshetra war. This temple said to have been built by Pancha Pandavas was devoured by Kaladevata. Renovation taken up by the devout bhaktas is now catering to the spiritual needs of bhaktas, who attend in large numbers during periodical festivals and yatris everyday. The background of its emergence gives a spur for reverent worship for sure success in life.

According to locals, Kalika was born from the forehead of Mother Parvathi to kill the formidable danavas and to save devas. She accomplished the task to the satisfaction of her creator and votaries. Hence great attraction. The decoration during periodical festivals is so enchanting that people specially pay visits for eyeful darsan of Mother then. The burning of jyoti all the twenty four hours and round the year is another plus point it claims for devotion Tuesdays draw huge crowds for participation in several kinds of pujas.
