Chausatthi Devi Temple is located at Varanasi
in Uttar Pradesh
. The presiding deity here is Chausatthi Devi, who is considered as the mother goddess. The name ‘Chausatthi’ is derived from word ‘chausatha’, which means 64. It indicates the number of yognis (assistant goddesses) of the mother goddess. However, the temple only enshrines 60 of these deities. The remaining 4 have been moved to other locations.
The temple attracts a sizeable number of devotees during the new moon day of the Hindu month of chaitra (March-April). On this auspicious day the pilgrims pay their homage to the goddess and take a dip in the holy waters of Ganges River, which flows nearby. Causatthi Ghat is located nearby.
