There is a big, wide open space infront of this temple for people to park their transports. It is less crowded unlike the other older temples we visited. The drill - leave our shoes and cameras at the Reception area before entering the temple.

I caught a glimpse of the small golden idol being worshipped by the locals. We then went around the temple for some religious reason.

On the way out, a huge white cow was blocking our way. My guide slightly shoved him to move, he got reprimanded by a local who was watching him.

Get flowers and prasad at the gate. You can easily get an auto at nearby police chowki. The temple is of Durga ji and a small temple of Bhairav bhagwan inside the premises. The temple is clean and maintained. Don't carry your mobile or you can leave it at the counter just in front of the inside temple gate with nominal dakshina in dan peti. Must visit.

The Durga Mata temple in Varanasi is a beautiful temple. It is a brick structure in red colour with a water body-Durga kund in the temple complex. The temple offers serene ambiance. Lot of monkeys are near temple and it is said that the monkeys guard the temple.

We have visited Durga Mata Temple on 20th of November. I have also visited earlier there in the month of July. It is really a place where your mind & soul get relaxed and you feel peace at your heart. Must visited place if you are going to Varanashi

The Durga temple is a beautiful ancient temple which is red in colour. It has a pond named the Durga kund beside it. Taking the darshan of Ma and sitting for sometime in the corridor is a beautiful feeling.

Monkey temple is dedicated to Goddess Durga and was constructed in the 18th century by the Queen of Bengal as a center of devotion. The temple is known to be guarded by monkeys, which can be even fed by the devotees. It also has a kund that is known to be connected to Ganga, and its water is known to have therapeutic properties.

This temple is a must-visit place in Varanasi if you wish to seek the blessings of Goddess Durga, who is known to be the principal deity of this temple. The prayers and bhajans that are chanted in this temple make its aura extremely blissful.

Stop calling it monkey temple, monkey God. It should be Hanuman temple . It is very offensive to call it as monkey God, elephant God etc

There is an abandoned amusement park ride at the entrance.
The area around the Temple is dirty with trash. Yes this is India, but a Temple and it's surroundings shouldn't be disgusting,
Any are with water was stagnant and unappealing.
The monkey's come flying down the hillside when a local brings food. I wouldn't want to get near them.
This was the worst Temple we saw in 3 weeks in India.
