(0)

Vindhyachal Temple, also known as Maa Vindhyavasini Temple and Vindhyachal Dham, is a Hindu temple dedicated to the mother goddess Vindhyavasini in Mirzapur district, Uttar Pradesh. It is one of India’s Shakti Pitha temples. Maa Vindhyavasini Vindhychal Mai is the head deity of Vindhyachal Dham, Mirzapur.

Maa Vindhyavasini, a manifestation of Maa Durga, is the Family Goddess (Kul Devi), Protecting Goddess (Rakshak Devi), and Regional Goddess (Kshetra Devi) of Eastern Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Millions of settled Hindus around the world believe in Maa Vindhyachal Wali’s blessings and visit Vindhyachal Mandir to receive blessings from Devi Maa.

As depicted in Durga Saptashati, Maa Vindhyavasini is Mahishasur Mardini (Slayer of the Evil Presence Mahishasur). The heavenly city Vindhyachal is located on the banks of the Ganges, precisely between two profoundly divine Hindu urban communities, Prayag (Allahabad) and Kashi (Varanasi).

The Story Behind Vindhyachal Temple

The goddess of Dakshayani, Sati, Parvati, or Durga Hinduism’s most influential woman and most powerful deity is referred to as Shakti. Durga Devi, Mahakali, and Gowri are the three main manifestations of Shakti, the power goddess. She is Adi Shakti’s avatar.

The goddess takes her name from the Vindhya Range, and Vindhyavasini literally translates to “she who resides in Vindhya.” because it is believed that Sati’s body parts fell to Earth during the creation of the Shaktipeeths. Be that as it may, Vindhayachal is the spot and a Shaktipeeth, where the Devi had decided to dwell after her introduction to the world. Maha-Yogini Mahamaya gave birth at the same time as Krishna, the eighth child of Devaki-Vasudeva, at Nanda-Yashoda. Vasudev had replaced Krishna with this girl child of Yashoda, as instructed by God Vishnu.
