Maa Bhagwati Temple
 

Maa Bhagwati Temple, situated about 7kms from the city center at Chhend Housing Colony near SOS childrens village is considered as a great place of worship. The small hill occupying the temple is located in a picturesque setting surrounded by different types of trees with a clean environment. The main ritual of the temple is the 'Yaga' - performed daily with pure ghee and the 'Chandi Paath' - the recital of Devi Mahatmyam. 

Legend has it that, earlier the place (where the temple is now situated) was occupied with an ashram established by the great sage Paraser. The sage got married to Satyawati who was a daughter of fisherman. It is also said that Vedavyas, who had written the great Mahabharata, was the son of Paraser and Satyawati. When Maa Bhagwati Temple was constructed in the year 1993, some earthen pots filled with ashes was found from depth of foundation of the temple, which were buried at the time of Paraser Ashram.
