About Yogmaya Temple

Believed as one of the five surviving temples from Mahabharata period, Yogmaya Temple lies in proximity to Qutub Minar. It is an ancient temple dedicated to the sister of Lord Krishna. Having a contemporary structure, the idol inside the shrine is made of black stone placed in marble. The sanctum of the temple is 5.2 metres wide with a flat roof over which a tower is built. This tower is 12.8 metres high and has copper plated pinnacle. Devotees offer flowers and sweetmeats at the shrine which are placed on a marble table in front of the idol. Bells, which are an intricate part of Hindu temples, are not tolled during the worship of goddess Yogmaya. You cannot offer wine and meat at the temple as the goddess is stated to be austere and exacting. It is said that Yogmaya predicted the death of Kansa at the hands of Krishna. Kansa tried to kill her on the day of Janmashtami but the goddess vanished mysteriously.
