  • Went for prayers in the morning. Being Sunday, thought there would be huge rush. But, there was manageable rush, efficiently managed queue's, which didn't took much time. Should focus on cleanliness t...  more »
  • With Kalkaji Metro station next to it, it becomes easily accessible through Public Transport. Very old and heritage temple. Very crowded during festive periods specially Navratras. 
  • It's a place of religious significance so be prepared to spend long hours in queue to reach the actual shrine. People are not so friendly and will keep pushing you to move fast!

  • Kalkaji Mandir is located next to Kalkaji Metro stn. You can walk. Temple is mostly crowded and Queue is usual. CLEANLINESS is always concern at majorly crowded places. Origin¬† Existent from past 3,000 years, Kalkaji Temple traces many legends regarding its origin. However, the oldest part of the shrine dates back to the 1764 A.D. Kalka Temple is said to have been constructed by the Maratha Rulers in the late 18th century. Kalkaji Mandir is believed to have been survived from the times of Mahabharata.¬† As per the folklore, the Pandavas and Kauravas had worshipped Kalka Devi during the reign of Yudhisthir. In the words of Laura Sykes, "Marathas plundered the fair at Kalka Devi, near Okhla" at some stage in the battle of 1738 with the Mughals at Talkatora. Raja Kedarnath (Peshkar of Emperor Akbar II) made some changes and additions to the original structure of Kalkaji Temple.
