Annapurna Devi Mandir, also known as Annapurna Mandir and Annapurna Mata Mandir, is one of the most famous Hindu temples (Mandir) in the holy city of Benaras(Varanasi). This temple has great religious significance in Hinduism and is dedicated to the goddess Annapurna. Annapurna is the Hindu goddess for nutriment and is a form of the goddess Parvati. The current Annapurna Mandir was built in the 18th century by Maratha Peshwa Bajirao I.
Annapurna Devi Mandir was built in 1729 AD by Maratha Peshwa Baji Rao. Legend-- According to belief, once Shiva commented that the entire world (including food) is illusion. Parvati, the goddess of food, got angry and decided to show the importance of food by making all the food on earth disappear. The world began to suffer due to hunger. Shiva finally came to Parvati and recognised the importance of food, begging for food at her door. Parvati became happy, offered food by her own hands to Shiva and then made a kitchen in Varanasi for her believers.
