Koradi Mandir, Mandir


India, the spiritual leader of the world, has the world’s largest count of beautiful temples and shrines. There are around 51 Shakti-peeths of Devi Jagadamba. The Temple of Devi of Koradi – Shri Mahalaxmi Jagadamba – is considered as one of the Shakti-peeths. It has a great history and lakhs of devotees visit the temple every year. Shri Mahalaxmi is also honoured as ‘Jakhapurvasini’ – the divine shakti which resides in Jakhapur (the historical name of the place). Located on the banks of Koradi lake, the temple is at a distance of around 15 kilometres from Nagpur (northern side). There are many interesting stories of belief and real life experiences of devotees. Shri Mahalaxmi Jagadamba resides in the hearts of devotees and many believe to have succeeded because of her ashirwad (blessings). In the previous era, Koradi was known as Jakhapur. The King of Jakhapur, Raja Jholan, had seven children – Janoba, Nanoba, Banoba, Bairoba, Khairoba, Agnoba, Dattasur. The king was unhappy as he had no daughter. He performed Yagya, Havan, Puja, Tapashchrya and pleased the Gods and requested them to bless him with a Daughter. A daughter with divine beauty was born. After seeing his daughter for the first time, the King felt that Adi Shakti manifested in the form of his daughter. The king of Jholan had various experiences of the divine shakti who was born as his daughter. She had given him appropriate guidance which had made decision making easier for him. She had shown great visionary support in difficult times. Once in a war when she accompanied the king, she had shown great justice towards the king as well as his opponents. The king once again realised the power of that divine Shakti. While returning from the war, Jakhumai being the divine shakti decided to stop at the place where thesun would set. That place is regarded as Jakhapur (now Koradi). The moorti (idol) is believed to be 'Swayambhu' - manifested one, as nobody installed it. The surroundings consist of a Kund and Goumukh. There is a natural stream of cool water. Stones of Rangoli are still found in this area. The architectural beauty of the shrine finely showcases the ancient roots of the mandir. People are believed to succeed in the four components of a good life – Arth, Dharma, Kaam, Moksha with the blessings of Devi Jakhumai.
