Durgiana Temple, also known as Lakshmi Narayan Temple, is a Hindu temple located in the city of Amritsar. It bears a stark resemblance to the famous Golden Temple while also carrying the same sense of peace, tranquillity and spirituality. Within this historic temple lies a beautiful Sarovar where one can find idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Vishnu floating. These idols are greatly revered and worshipped by pilgrims, making this temple a famous Hindu pilgrimage spot. Gur Shai Mal Kapoor, whose statue can be found at the main entrance of the temple, laid the foundation for this architectural wonder. The rare sculpture of the sitting Hanuman, considered one of a kind, is found in Durgiana Temple. One of the main highlights at this serene location is the fountain show which takes place in front of the main temple every evening.
Apart from the main temple, one can find many subsidiary temples at this sacred site. The Bara Hanuman Mandir where Hanuman was said to be captured by the twins of Rama and Sita. Mata Sitla Mandir which is dedicated to Sitla, who sits beside a Shiva Linga and a brass lion. Idols of Sat Narain and Radha Krishna can be found in the premises of the Sat Narain Mandir and the Goswami Tulsidas Mandir is dedicated to Tulsidas where one can find a rare handwritten copy of the Ramayana.
The temple ensures that visitors are taken care of during their visit to this holy place. One can rest at the "Shrimati Dhanwant Kaur Dharamshala" which is located in the temple periphery. Langar Bhawan, run by the Durgiana Management Committee, serves pilgrims throughout the day. The committee is also known for reaching out to the society through various services to help uplift the needy and being the pure representation of faith.
