Chandika Devi Temple (Juchandra) Vasai

The main temple is very old and was probably built during the Pandava period. The natives of Juchandra believe the mother goddess to be there ‘Kuldevta’ one who answers to all their prayers. The temple structure was recently created in progressive phases as donations from devotees started coming. The trustees of this temple make untiring efforts to further develop the temple and make it accessible to all devotees. Navratri is celebrated in the temple premises with great enthusiasm. Wrestling competitions, folk dance, music and garba is the main theme during Navratri when devotees from everywhere throng the temple in thousands. Other than that you can visit this temple any time during the year.


The temple is perched on a small hillock and can be reached by well-built concrete steps. Arial view from the top is breathtaking as one can scan the south Vasai landscape.

Juchandra is a Village in Vasai Taluka, Thane District, and Maharashtra State. Just 1.5 Km. from NH-8, Juchandra is 7.9 km distance from its Taluka Main Town Vasai.

  2. On 13th of April i have planed to go to shirdi at night. Same day in morning while going to my office @virar i saw a name it was chandika Aai in marathi on mountain after bhayander i didnt excatly remember the location but after that i have never seen a name of chandika aai written on any of the mountain after bhayander to virar. Its been more than month every day i look for that mountain where i might see the name. But now i cant see the name. After searching on net i found their is temple of chandi devi in naigaon. I hope their is name written as chandika aai ((in marathi)) somewhere their which i saw on 13th april 2017. After that i never saw the name. Might be i am not able to see that mountain now. Or was that a magic of chandika devi. To let me know and to make me to visit their.

    1. Yes, there is name written 'Chandika aai' on the mountain of Chandika devi, Juchandra. Nowadays because of fogs that name gets hidden. But in winter season or specially in summer season you can see that name far away on a mountain between naigaon and bhayandar before Vasai creek. Just concentrate to east side of track.
