Then I headed towards the Jhandewalan Devi Temple you can walk or take rickshaw. I decided to walk to till Jhandewalan Devi Temple. It is 15-20 minutes walk to the temple.Jhandewalan Temple is an ancient Hindu temple dedicated to Maa Aadi Shakti (avatar of goddess Durga). The temple is located on Jhandewalan Road on the way to Karol Bagh, Delhi, India. The temple is another famous and respected shrine of the goddess. The temple receives a large number of devotees throughout the year. The name Jhandewalan was given during Shah Jahan's reign, due to the prayer flags or 'jhandas' being offered.It is said that Jhandewalan was once located in a mountain region. When this place was excavated then sanctum of goddess was descended and on this place the temple was established. It is believed that Badri Bhagat, one of the great devotee of Matarani, dreamed of her and she told him about this idol. Thereafter the temple was constructed at the same place. The original idol of Jhandewali Mata Ji is present at ground level. The temple is one of the famous religious site for Hindu's. Here everyone can come and worship irrespective of the caste and status. The temple is echoed with day and night chanting of the goddess mantras. The devotees are blessed with happiness, peace and good health.Many festivals are celebrated in Jhandewalan Temple. On the occasion of Durga Puja and Navratra, a special Puja is organized. The temple is decorated with flowers and light. The temple's spiritual environment give peace of mind and heart to the devotees.

If you're the kind who goes on anti-pollution campaigns at Connaught Place, then you need to buy yourself a good bicycle to prove that you really care about the environment. And Jhandewalan Cycle Market is where you should be headed.
Bicycles, bicycles everywhere!
Time to get some blessings to complete my ride, so went to the hanuman mandir at Jhandewalan. At this point I was alone, Sudheesh left for home. Now my journey is alone.. Old temple and very famous.
