The Tripura Sundari Temple is located in Tewar village on Bhedaghat road around 13 km from the centre of the city Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. One of the main attractions of Jabalpur, the Tripura Sundari Temple is considered sacred and an important place of worship in the city. Built in the 11th century, it is believed that the idol that houses in the temple emerged from the ground.
Tripura literally means “three cities” and Sundari means “beautiful ladies”; hence the popular inference that is accepted as the meaning of the temple is "Beautiful Goddess of the Three Cities".
However, the triple form of the goddess as found in the doctrine of Shaktism is said to be the actual interpretation and symbolizes the might and strength of the female Goddess.
This temple is flocked by thousand round the year especially during the ten days of durga puja or dussera festival. Holy saints and religious gurus find the Tripura Sundari Temple an enchanting temple beyond words.
