History

Kalkaji Mandir is amongst the oldest and the most reverend ancient temples of India. It is also called ‘Jayanti Peetha’ or ‘Manokamna Siddha Peetha’. Manokamna literally means desire, siddha means fulfillment, Peetha means shrine. So, it is the holy shrine where one gets the blessings of Maan Kalika Devi(Goddess Shri Kalika Devi) for the fulfillment of one’s desires.

Thousands of devotees come here everyday from from far and wide to get the blessings of Goddess Maan Kalika Devi. The Number of devotees rises to lakhs during the Navratras which has a special significance for her devotees.
