About Shitila Devi Temple

Shitila Devi Temple is an ancient temple located at Kelva town near to Thane. The deity here is Goddess Shitila-Mata, who is believed to be a very powerful goddess. Temple was actually constructed in ancient past and underwent complete renovation and restoration at the time of the seventhly female Holkar ruler, Devi Ahilyabai Holkar. Over 300 years after its construction, the temple structure has become seriously worn out. Thereafter, some discerning souls of Kelva town executed the repairs and a temple restoration committee was formed. The latest renewal of the temple structure was in 1986. Just opposite to the Shitila Devi Temple, there is an irrigated land, which is named as Bagalwadi. Goddess Shitila is believed to inherit the security of this land. The temple is open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and there are morning and evening aartis conducted here daily. There are many stalls of flower and garland vendors there around the temple.
