This year too being no exception, Shakti Mandir saw a huge turnout of devotees during the auspicious Navratri festivity.

On all nine days of the Navratri festivity, “Mata Ki Chowki” program was organised with different singers performing every day. The program was followed by the distribution of sumptuous Bhandara Prasad for Devotees that came to seek blessings from the Divine Goddess from all nooks and corners of the city.

Sunil Sapra, the caretaker of the Temple has been at the helm of the day to day management since the inception stages.

In addition to the Navratris, Shakti Temple has been hosting devotional programs every Monday, and this too, has been a permanent fixture since the last few years.

Likewise, on occasions namely Diwali, RamNavami, Makar Sakranti, Baisakhi, ShivRatri, Holi, Janamashtami, Ganesh Chaturthi etc, the Temple wears a vibrant festive look as it is thronged by countless devotees who enthusiastically partake in the grand devotional celebrations.

The 30 year old Shakti Mandir is situated on a prime location on the main road of Sant Nagar that further connects it to the road leading to GK-1, Nehru Place & Lajpat Nagar-4.

Explaining the significance of Navratris, Veena Mataji, an ardent devotee of the Divine Goddess shared, “The devotees feel truly enchanted with the devotional songs, hailing the true spirit of Navratris which is a ‘Festival of Nine Nights’ observed in honour of Goddess Durga.
The festival is all about worshipping the “Shakti” which is an integral component of our timeless Sanatan Dharma. Immense importance is attached to four ageless rituals performed during Navratri’s namely Kalash Sthapana, Khetri Pujan, Fasting and Kanya worshipping. Navratris are celebrated twice a year, once during the Chaitra period, and second during the Ashvin Paksh. Besides, Gupt Navratris are also celebrated by devotees. Since time immemorial, we have been celebrating our festivals and customs with all devotional fervour and enthusiasm. The custom of celebrating Festivals in India has undeniably played a pivotal role in spreading awareness among the Gen Next about the relevance of our age old customs and rituals. Kudos to Sunil Sapra and his team of dedicated volunteers who have been hosting devotional programs round the year for devotees on various occasions such as
Holi, Diwali, Lohri, Basant Panchmi, Janamashtami etc. It’s a matter of pride that devotees from all around the city have been celebrating different festivals together in this Temple like one extended family since the last three decades.”
