One of the most significant Hindu pilgrimages in the nation is the Sheetla Mata Mandir in Gurgaon, which is one of the nine shakti peeths. The Devi is seen as Sheetla’s reincarnation of Goddess Durga. The Goddess is loved because they think she can banish smallpox if they worship her completely with faith. Jat King Jawahar Singh constructed the current temple in the 18th century. In the Mahabharata epic, she is also thought to be Kripi (Lalitha), the wife of Guru Dronacharya, the teacher of the Pandavas and the Kauravas. The name Gurugram, or the village of the guru, is derived from the Gurgaon district, where the temple is situated on Sheetla Mata Road.
