The Lalita Devi Temple is one of two Shaktipeeths present in Allahabad. Legend has it that Bhagwati Lalita Devi appeared here after the fingers of Sati fell near the Yamuna. Over the years, the temple has been renovated several times.
The last time when it was renovated was in the year 1987. The 103 feet high temple has a 41 feet entrance. Although it attracts devotees the year round, the number of visitors are very high during the Navratri period when all nine forms of goddesses are decorated differently.
