Lalita Gauri Mandir Wikipedia
King of Nepal, Rana Bahadur Shah took exile in Varanasi from 1800 to 1804 and titled himself as "Swami Nirgunanda". During his exile, he decided to build a ghat to house replica of Pashupatinath Temple in Varanasi. The spot chosen was Lalit Ghat, which was named after the Lalita Gauri mandir. Shah constructed a Nepali Mandir along with the Ghat.
Lalita Gauri is the third form of Goddess Gauri (who is a form of Goddess Parvati). It is believed that a person who worships Lalita Gauri, will attain wealth and prosperity.
Lalita Gauri mandir is situated on the Lalita Ghat, 5 kilometers South-East of Varanasi Junction railway station and 300 meters East of Kashi Vishwanath Temple.
