Shakti Mandir


The temple of Goddess Shakti or Durga is located in the heart of the Dhanbad city, at Joraphatak, 2 kms from the railway station. The temple which is less than a decade old is an impressive structure made of white marble. The main sanctum bearing the icon of the Goddess is on the first floor. It also has an image of Lord Shiva, which is rare in Jharkhand, considering the preponderance of Ling worship here.
