NAGNEJI MATA TEMPLE

NAGNEJI MATA TEMPLE

When Diwan Mujahid Khan II married Manbai, he received a book and a picture of Nagneji Devi in his dowry by mistake. Considering this as a sign of good fortune, he erected a temple of Nagneji Devi in Rajgadhi. Believed to be constructed in the 16th century, this temple pays homage to Nagneji Devi and Lord Shiva.



The temple's Shiva Linga, which depicts the Moon and Stars as well as the Om, Swastika and the Cross as an embodiment of unity amongst all religions, makes this temple unique. It has a strong tradition of being closely linked to Navaratri, and is opened only once a year, on the 8th day of the festival.
