Maa Vindhyavasini Temple, Mirzapur



Vindhyavasini Temple in Vindhyachal, which is about 7 km from Mirzapur, is dedicated to Goddess Durga and is one of the sacred spots in Hinduism. Located on the banks of Ganga, this Hindu temple is popularly known as Mirzapur Temple and is midway between Prayag (Allahabad) and Kashi (Varanasi).

Vindhyachal Dham is one among the important Shaktipeeths and legend has it that Sati’s left toe had fallen here after she destroyed herself on hearing the humiliating words from Daksha about her husband Lord Shiva.

Goddess Durga after eliminating the fierce demon Mahishasura decided to reside on the hills here and thus she came to be known as Vindhyavasini. Residing here she continued to eliminate several other demons.

Devotees believe that by worshipping Maa Vindhyavasini all their desires will be fulfilled.
