“Ancient Devi temple”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Witnessing the morning Arti at this ancient temple was one of the most soul stirring experiences of my life....after that the head Pujari brought out the platter with the Bhog offered to the deity and personally distributed the prasad amongst the devotees...something I have not experienced at temples before!

“Kalkaji Temple is a famous Hindu mandir”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

Kalka Mandir or kalkaji Temple is a well-known and highly respected Hindu Mandir. The temple is devoted to Hindu goddess Kali or Kalka, an avatar of Durga and situated in South Delhi, India near Lotus Temple. The temple is one of Delhi's main tourist attraction. Devotees be there to the Kalkaji Temple throughout the year but the peak point of the celebration comes during the festival of Navratri. This is a nine day festival, during which a large fair is organized here.

“Holy vibes”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

I often visited this temple during my first prolonged stay in Delhi two decades back. It retains its holy vibes still as I found out in a recent visit, but the environs have changed. It was more peaceful and closer to nature before.

“JAI MAHA KAAL... BIGGEST TEMPLE IN NORTH INDIA”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

Kalkaji Mandir is amongst the oldest and the most reverend ancient temples of India. The temple is dedicated to goddess Kalka or Kali, an incarnation of Durga. It is also called 'Jayanti Peetha' or 'Manokamna Siddha Peetha'. 'Manokamna' literally means desire, 'Siddha' means fulfillment, and 'Peetha' means shrine. So, it is believed to be the holy shrine where one gets the blessings of Maa Kalika Devi (Goddess or Mother Kalika) for the fulfillment of one's desires.
The temple complex is situated on Kalkaji Mandir (Delhi Metro), in between the Nehru Place bus terminus & business center and Okhla railway station & industrial area, and is right beside the famous Bahá'í Lotus Temple. Close by to the temple, on a hill in the East of Kailash neighbourhood and near the ISKCON temple, lies an Edict of Ashoka, dating 3rd century BC....
