Chandika Devi Temple (Juchandra) Vasai

The main temple is very old and was probably built during the Pandava period. The natives of Juchandra believe the mother goddess to be there ‘Kuldevta’ one who answers to all their prayers. The temple structure was recently created in progressive phases as donations from devotees started coming. The trustees of this temple make untiring efforts to further develop the temple and make it accessible to all devotees. Navratri is celebrated in the temple premises with great enthusiasm. Wrestling competitions, folk dance, music and garba is the main theme during Navratri when devotees from everywhere throng the temple in thousands. Other than that you can visit this temple any time during the year.

The temple is perched on a small hillock and can be reached by well-built concrete steps. Arial view from the top is breathtaking as one can scan the south Vasai landscape.
