About Shri Mata Sheetla Devi Temple

Sheetala Devi, also called Bhagat Lalita Maa and Masani Maa is worshiped as an incarnation of Goddess Durga. It is believed that she cures poxes, sores, ghouls and diseases with her divine powers. She is the presiding deity of the temple called Sheetala Mata Mandir located at Gurgaon village, a suburb of Gurgaon (Guru Dhronacharya’s birthplace). Hordes of pilgrims visit this temple to seek blessings of Sheetala Devi at this serene; pond side temple, which is also known as ‘Shakti Peeth.' There are many legends associated with the formation of this temple. According to one, there once lived a person named Singha in the village of Gurgaon. He owned acres of land but was extremely humble, and despite all the fame, he spent most of his time chanting Bhajans. Impressed by his devotion, Goddess Sheetala appeared in his dreams and granted him a boon that gave him the power to free a person of all his pains with his touch. After this, Singha left his luxurious abode and came beside a pond to meditate. He made crude temple like structures representative of Sheetala Maa and started worshipping her. Then one day, as he collected mud from the pond, he found an idol of the Goddess and consecrated it in the crude structure, which later became day Sheetala Devi temple that stands today! The temple breaks ones’ prejudice of crowded temples not being up to the mark in terms of hygiene. This temple is surprisingly clean and it is a pleasure to sit in its open spaces.
