Located on the main Guragon-Mehrauli Road, about 4-kilometers away from Qutab Minar Complex, the sacred Chhatarpur Temple is one of the largest and most popular Hindu temples of the capital. Completely built with white marble and richly crafted, the temple complex has many temples dedicated to different deities like Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha and Lord Rama. However, the main presiding deity of the whole temple complex is Goddess Durga. Thus the Chhatarpur Temple becomes the center of attraction of the capital during the festival of Navratri when thousands of devotees throng the temple complex.
Built in the south Indian style, the temple complex is spread over a large area with beautiful manicured lawns and gardens. The whole ambience of the temple complex is very religious as discourses and prayers are held round the clock. The other attraction of the temple is a tree tied with many threads and appears as if decorated with colorful bangles. It is believed that tying a thread or bangle on the tree leads to the fulfillment of the devotees wishes.
Don’t forget to remove your shoes outside the temple and wash your hands and feet before entering the temple.
