Vindhyavasini Temple In Mirzapur


The holy pilgrimage of Vindhyachal is situated in eastern Uttar Pradesh, in the Mirzapur district, at 8 km from the district headquarters. The presiding deity is Vindhyavasini Devi.

There are 3 temples representing the 3 forms of Aadi Shakti - Vindhyavasini (Kaushiki Devi), Mahakali and Ashtabhuja. The visit to these 3 temples is known as Trikon Yatra.

This region also showcases colourful tribal culture. Primitive tribes like Khairwa, Baiga, Kol, and Gond inhabit in this region.

Vindhyavasini Devi is called Kajri Devi by the locals. It is believed that the Kajri form of singing originated from here. Folk dance forms like Karma, Jhumar, and Kolthani are also popular here.

The entire region is known for its dhurries and bronze articles in India.

Vindhyachal Shaktipeeth is considered as one amongst the 108 Shaktipeeths mentioned in Devi Bhagwat Puran.
