About Maya Devi Temple

Maya Devi Temple is a sacred Hindu temple dedicated to goddess Maya in the divine city of Haridwar. One of the Shakti Peeths, the temple is beleived to be on the location where Sati's navel fell. Haridwar was formerly known as Mayapuri in reference to this deity. Dating back to the 11th century, the temple is one of the three Siddh Peeth's along with Mansa Devi and Chandi Devi. Adhisthatri, a three-headed and four-armed deity, an incarnation of Shakti adorns the temple and is worshiped by revered pilgrims throughout the year. This temple is one of the three ancient temples of Haridwar along with Narayana-shila and Bhairava Temple. The inner sanctum consists of idols of goddesses - goddess Maya in the centre, Goddess Kali on the left, Kamakhya on the right. There are also two other forms of Shakti present in the inner sanctum. It is considered as a must visit for followers going to Haridwar. The temple is crowded by many devotees from various parts of the country during the occasion Navratra and the Kumbha Mela.
