Legend

 

This temple also has the Mayukh Aditya temple. There is also Lord Shiva inside the temple grounds under the name of Gabhastheeswarar, who was established by Lord Surya. Goddess Gauri lives in Kashi in her Nav Gauri incarnations to bless her followers.

Mukhnirmalika Gauri, Jyeshta Gauri, Saubhagya Gauri, Shringar Gauri, Vishalakshi Gauri, Lalita Gauri, Bhavani Gauri, Mangla Gauri, and Mahalaxmi Gauri are among the nine temples for Goddess Gauri that are located in Varanasi. Devotees of Goddess Gauri during Vasantik Navratri are said to be able to obtain pleasure, prosperity, tranquility, and the forgiveness of their sins by receiving her darshan.

According to Kashi Khand, Goddess Bhavani Gauri, the eighth manifestation of Goddess Gauri, is honored on the eighth day of Vasantik Navratri. A Shivlinga and a statue of Goddess Gauri were originally installed at Panchnad Teerth (Panchganga Ghat), and Surya Dev engaged in strict penance, according to a narrative mentioned in Kashi Khand.

Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati appeared in front of him and took up residence there as a blessing for Surya Dev when Lord Shiva became delighted with his prayers. Goddess Gauri is another name for Goddess Parvati. It is thought that those who worship the goddess Mangala Gauri are granted a variety of happiness and success in their lives.

According to history, Lord Surya once set up a Shiv Ling and a Devi idol at Panchanada Teerth (Panchganga Ghat) and began fervently worshipping Lord Shiva. The intense heat produced by Lord Surya’s prayers began to reflect their intensity. The sun’s rays started to warm up. At last, it became intolerable for all creatures, and all physical activity virtually came to a halt.

Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati appeared in front of Lord Surya, pleased with his penance. The moment Lord Surya opened his eyes and began singing the praises of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, the two of them were overjoyed. Lord Surya received various wonderful desires from them.

Lord Shiva informed Lord Surya that the Devi idol he had installed would be known as Mangala Gauri. A person who worships Mangala Gauri with zeal is bestowed with all happiness and prosperity. Unmarried girls will find a suitable match soon, and childless couples will be blessed with children.
