Durgiana Temple, situated outside the Lohgarh Gate, bears a striking resemblance to the Golden Temple, also in Amritsar. Built in the 16th century, Durgiana Temple, as the name suggests, is dedicated to Goddess Durga. Just like the Golden Temple, this temple is surrounded by a holy water tank. The foundation for the temple was laid down by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya. This temple is also referred to as the Silver Temple due to its exquisitely engraved silver doors.
Although the primary deity inside the Durgiana Temple is Goddess Durga, other deities like Goddess Laxmi (the goddess of wealth) and Lord Narayan (the preserver of universe) are also worshipped inside the temple. The tank, located inside the temple premises, is considered to be holy by the visitors. Durgiana Temple also enjoys a close proximity to the Amritsar Junction Railway Station. Visiting the temple floods you with inner peace as devotional songs, also called bhajans, are sung during the opening and closing of the temple. Various Hindu festivals including Ram Navami, Diwali and Dussehra, besides others, are celebrated with great enthusiasm inside the temple.
