  CHUNAR - DURGA MANDIR

This is a cave temple built in an odd way. The darsan of this august Durga Devi is possible only through a window and it forms the front portion of the entrance. Inside the garbhagriha there is adequate space to sit and meditate on the Mother. The serenity and sublimity pervading here seduces everyone to meditate for a while. And the Mother's icon is a piece of supreme artistry of the sculptor that keep at rest all the wavering instincts and inspire one to pay obeisance by closing the eyes and joining of hands. Those who start any enterprise in these parts visit and pray for the grace of the Mother. And he achieves what is aspired for. The image of Mother is made of black granite and its proportions and gestures are quite attractive and awe-some. There is a rivulet flowing nearly the temple and it serves sever this and priests for several purposes. There lies in front of it a big cave with wide opening serving visitors for rest and meditation.

This lies 5 km off Chunar railway station, accessible by four wheelers.
