Mahavidya Devi or the Ambika Devi is the other name of goddess Parvati, the wife of Lord Shiva. It’s also believed that the original deity of the temple was set up and worshipped by Pandavas during their exile period. The deity of Ambika Devi is believed to be the kul Devi of Nand Baba (foster father of Lord Krishna) of Gokul and he often used to come to Mathura to pay his obeisance to Maa Ambika. The temple building has very common and usual Nagar style architecture. It is actually in the form of quadrangle situated on a hill with a series of 30-40 steps leading down from the main gate to the lower ground. It was built by Marathas (peshwas) towards the end of 18th century. The idol of Ambika Devi is built of white marble with its eyes very appealing. A grand mela is held every year on the 8th day of bright fortnight in the month of Chaitra (March-April) and Ashwin (September-October).
