Kalkaji temple popularly known as Kalkaji Mandir is purely dedicated to the Goddess Kalka Devi. Situated beyond the commercial complex of Nehru Place, or front of the famous Lotus temple, temple gives distinctive feeling and the devotees are overwhelmed by light, which stay during the whole night Small red flags decorate the temple and women outnumber men among the devotees. Devotees throng the temple throughout the year but the culmination point of the celebration comes during the festival of Navratri. This is a nine-day festival, during which a large fair is organized here. Ma Kali is ambiguous but powerful. Devotees also try to meditate there and a spectacular tantric aarati is held at about 7 pm.It is near to Bahai Temple, which is just opposite on the other side of a big road. It is very old temple where Pandavs and Kauravs had worshiped during the reign of Yudhisthir, whose citadel of Indraprastha had the fabled fairy gates of which bards sang, much like Homer of old, right up to the time of Prithviraj Chauhan.
