Durga Mandir, also known as Durgakund Temple, is a well-known Hindu temple in Varanasi that is situated close to Tulsi Manas Temple at a distance of 7 kilometres from Varanasi Junction. It is a well-known Banaras pilgrimage site and one of the top Varanasi tourist attractions.

A Bengali Maharani built Durga Mandir, a temple honouring Goddess Durga, in the 18th century. The temple’s idol, according to tradition, didn’t come into being through human intervention. It is thought that Goddess Durga has shielded Varanasi from the south for many years. The temple is regarded as the “monkey temple” since visitors can see several monkeys in the area.

The temple was constructed in the Nagara architectural style. To match the colour of the main Durga icon, the goddess of power and strength, the temple is painted red with ochre. The temple is made up of numerous little Sikharas connected by walls. The Durga Kund, a rectangular tank that is home to the temple, is also known by this name. Within the walls of the temple are idols of the goddesses Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Kali. The temple, which was constructed in 1772 by the saint Narayana Diksith, is next to another well-known spot called Durga Ghat. A modest Kharva Narasimha shrine is also located within the ghat.

During Navratri, tens of thousands of Hindu worshippers go to the Durga Kund Temple to worship the goddess. On the festival of Nag Panchami, the Kund recreates the scene in which God Vishnu is shown lying on the serpent.
