Maa Dewri Temple Overview

One of the city’s oldest temples, Maa Dewri temple is one of the most popular places to visit in Ranchi. It is known for the 700-year-old idol of Goddess Durga that it houses. Hundreds flock to the temple to witness the idol that has 16 hands, instead of the usual 8. Another unique feature of this temple is that no cementing material was used in its construction. Stones were simply placed on top of each other in order to build this temple.

It is widely believed that the Maa Dewri Temple has the power to make its devotees’ wishes come true, for which they tie yellow and red sacred threads on bamboo.  Once their wishes are fulfilled, they go back to the temple and untie the threads. As if this wasn’t reason enough to visit, it is also interesting to note that the Maa dewri Temple is the only temple where tribal priests offer prayers along with the Brahmin priests.
