Bharat Mata Mandir, Devgiri Fort

The Devgiri Fort 15 kms from Aurangabad, has many interesting structures. Each one of them is very different from each other.



The fort also has a temple, dedicated to Bharat Mata Mandir. It is opposite to Chand Minar near the Hathi Hauz. There is a dome shaped entrance gate to the temple. 



This temple has many ancient pillar halls and there is a wide courtyard in front of the temple. 




Within the rows of pillars there is a beautiful sanding image of Bharat Mata. The image of deity is very new when compared to rest of the structures.

Your wonderful photo of the ancient pillar halls evoked strong emotion, perhaps because I thought of the massive amount of human labour and (most likely) suffering that went into their construction. Love ABC Wednesday for the way it takes us around the world. Beautiful post.
