  AMRITSR - DURGA MANDIR

It lies outside the Longarh gate of the old city and is dedicated to Mother Durga. This is a much-hallowed pilgrim centre. The very first thing that stuns the visitors is its striking resemblance to the Golden Temple. This Hindu shrine is of recent construction and like the Golden Temple is surrounded by water on all sides. The Mother's icon is exquisitely chiselled and the artistic decoration with jewels and garlands fills the souls with inexplicable bliss. Elaborate agamic puja is performed daily and periodical festivals lure huge crowds. The lake is equally big in size, but one plus point it boasts is that there are many mini-shrines on the embankments around the main temple. The statues of almost all the principal gods adorning the Hindu Pantheon, like Siva, Gouri, Sarada, Lakshmi, Hanuma, Sri Rama, Krishna, Vinayaka etc., are installed on beautifully made pedestals. They appear extremely attractive and enkindle devotion by their enormous sizes and artistic adornments. There are many Dharmasalas in front of the temple for the stay of the visitors for days, if desired. The liberal endowments and regular donations by pious philanthropists enriched the temple and the management is catering to the needs of the devotees in several ways. Poor feeding and community singing are conducted periodically. A visit purges one of his sins, since almost all the adorable deities are assembled in one spacious campus.

It is about 2 km from Golden Temple in Amritsar and can be easily accessible by four wheelers.
