This is an ancient Hindu Temple that is said to have been located earlier on the hills which was later repositioned due to excavations. It is located on the Jhandewalan road on the way to Karol Bagh. The presiding deity is thet of Adi Shakti Maa Durga. The legend says that a man named Badri Bhagat was a great devotee of Mata Rani and that the Goddess appeared to him in his dreams and instructed about the idol. The original idol is kept in the first floor of the temple. The name Jhandewalan was given during the reign of Emperor Shah Jahan due to the temple flag offerings. Around a thousand devotees visit this temple every two days. The main festivals celebrated here are the Durga Puja and Navaratra.
