Yogmaya Mandir

Khasra No. 1806, Mehrauli, Seth Sarai, Mehrauli, New Delhi, Delhi 110030, India

Of all the temples in Delhi, the Yogmaya is not often frequented by tourists. This makes it a special space to reflect with the local Hindu Delhiites. The temple, also known as Jogmaya, is dedicated to Krishna’s sister Yogmaya. It is widely believed to be one of the five surviving temples from the Mahabharata period in Delhi. Because the Mahabharata is one of the two ancient Sanskrit epics, history comes alive at Yogmaya. The present structure, built in the early 19th century, is part of a much older shrine that has been preserved and cared for by the community.
