History

King of Nepal, Rana Bahadur Shah took exile in Varanasi from 1800 to 1804 and titled himself as "Swami Nirgunanda". During his exile, he decided to build a ghat to house replica of Pashupatinath Temple in Varanasi. The spot chosen was Lalit Ghat, which was named after the Lalita Gauri mandir. Shah constructed a Nepali Mandir along with the Ghat.[7][8]

Significance and religious belief

Lalita Gauri is the third form of Goddess Gauri (who is a form of Goddess Parvati).[1][9] It is believed that a person who worships Lalita Gauri, will attain wealth and prosperity.[5]

Location

Lalita Gauri mandir is situated on the Lalita Ghat, 5 kilometers South-East of Varanasi Junction railway station and 300 meters East of Kashi Vishwanath Temple.
