Establishment of temple

It is said that Jhandewalan was once located in a mountain region. When this place was excavated then sanctum of goddess was descended and on this place the temple was established. It is believed that Badri Bhagat, one of the great devotee of Matarani, dreamed of her and she told him about this idol. When Badri Bhagat got the idol excavated at this place, the idol was found in the ground, but unfortunately the hands of the mother's idol were broken while digging. According to Hindu scriptures, worship of a broken idol is prohibited. Therefore, silver hands were made and installed in the idol of the mother. That idol of the mother is still installed safely in the temple cave. Thereafter the temple was constructed at the same place.

The original idol of Jhandewali Mata Ji is present at ground level. The temple is one of the famous religious site for Hindu's.
