Devi Patan Travel Guide

70 km. from Gonda, situated amidst Himalayan tarai, is the Siddha Peeth of Devi Patan.

Just 2 km. from Tulsipur, this famous shrine is among one of the 51 Shakti Peeths. It is believed that the right shoulder of Sari had fallen here.

The Devi Patan Siddha Peeth had been established by Guru Gorakshnath of the Nath Sampradaya. The existing temple here is said to be constructed by King Vikramaditya. In the 11th century King Suheldeo of Sravasti had renovated the temple.

The Royal family of Balrampur, is today the caretaker of the temple.

A large fair takes place in Navratri and every year on Chaiva Panchami the deity of Pir Ratan Nath is brought from Dang in Nepal to the Devi Patan temple where it is worshipped along with the Devi.
