Points Of Interest for Ekvira Devi Temple

History of Ekvira Devi Temple

The temple was established by the Pandavas during their exile in the dense forests and since then it is revered by the local tribes. In later times, the goddess Ekvira Mata appeared before the Pandavas and since then it is regarded as a holy place. It is locally believed that when she appeared she instructed them to build a temple there. But she wished to test the work ethic of the Pandavas and she kept a condition that it should be built overnight.

To her surprise, the Pandavas made the temple in no time and they managed to impress her. To bless them, the Ekvira Devi granted them a boon that these caves can be their secret exile and no one can discover them at this place. Ekvira Devi was an avatar of Renuka Devi and is worshiped by the local tribes.
