Maa Durga is seated in the form of a Yantra in this temple. This temple is made of red stones.There is Durga Kund on one side of this temple.There are also idols of Baba Bhaironath, Goddess Laxmi, Mother Saraswati and Mahakali in this temple.According to Hinduism,After the killing of Shumbha and Nishumbha, Maa Durga rested in the temple located in Durgakund after getting tired.The effulgence of the Goddess in this temple is so fierce that by standing in front of the mother and having darshan, the sins of many births are burnt to ashes.

And all the kings challenged Prince Sudarshan for war, after accepting the challenge, the prince sought blessings from Maa Bhagwati.

Where the prince worshiped Shakti, that mother herself appeared and protected the prince.It is said that the mother appeared in the battlefield and killed everyone.The place where there was bloodshed in this war became a pond known as "Durgakund".People believe that the water in this pool comes from Patal, that's why it never dries up.

Wherever the mother herself appears, her statue is not installed, in such temples there is a rule of worshiping the symbol.The temple is based on the Bisa Yantra, a mechanical structure with twenty angles on which the foundation of the temple is placed.All kinds of auspicious works are done here. There is a havan kund inside the temple where havans are performed daily.
