Mythology believes the Maya devi temple as one of the Shaktipeethas. When Lord Shiva's wrath at the death of his wife Sati manifested as the Tandava which would destroy the Universe, Lord Vishnu's Sudarshan chakra cut her corpse into pieces which scattered around the subcontinent. It is believed that the Goddess' navel and heart fell where the temple of Maya devi stands today.
This Temple is part of famous Saptapuri Yatra , Haridwar Rishikesh Yatra.and Maha Kumb Mela.
The temple is one of the ancient temples in the holy city of Haridwar. The entrance to the temple is small and is situated among small buildings. But inside the small shrine is the three-headed and four-armed deity who is believed to be an incarnation of Shakti. The inner shrine consists of idols of goddesses Maya in the centre, Kali on the left, Kamakhya on the right.
