Though this superb Durga mandir came into existence in 1912, it has a long tale that began in 1770 A.D. with Chetsingh, the Maharaj of Banaras. Soon after his coronation, this king embarked upon the grandiose project of building a grand temple with a tank in front and a fort behind. Given to ostentation and pretentiousness, he wanted everything superb and splendiferous; and so shirked not spending lavishly. In a very short period the tank and fort reached completion, but not the temple; for, its huge dimensions and awe-some adornments could not be done as planned in time.

Unfortunately, he was forced to take up war against the unjust British expansionists. He had to leave his place and was constrained to be with the rulers of Gwalior. There was an abrupt stopping of the construction. In the mean while, he expired. It was only 1855 when the then ruling prince Narasingh Bahadur met a swamiji of repute and narrated his own problems including that of the incomplete temple construction. Pitying he gave him an idol of Durga and advised him to resume the construction work and install Durga Panchayatan. The pious king did as bid.
