The Dada Dev Mandir


The Dada Dev Mandir is located in Palam Village, sector 7, Delhi, is a revered place of worship for local people. Dada Dev is worshipped as the gram devta of 12 villages of Palam, Shahbad, Bagdola, Nasirpur, Bindapur, Dabri, Asalatpur, Untkala, Matiala, Baprola, Poothkala and Nangalrai. Since these villages surround the sub-city, the temple has come to occupy pride of place in the area. Manoj Saini, a resident of Palam says, “The temple is a symbol of our religious beliefs and there is also historical proof of it. In older times there was Baba Dada dev in Tonk district in Rajasthan who was one of the incarnations of Shesh Nag. We call it the temple of gram devta of 12 villages and people have great faith in him.” The temple complex is huge and is spread over eight acres. Devotees believe in seeking the blessings of Dada Dev before starting any new venture. All the year around pilgrims come to the temple to offer prayers and to seek fulfillment of their wishes.

According to the temple priest, It was the time of Vikram Samvant 781 or 838 AD when the temple was established. Saints Dada Dev and Jaidev brought the pious stone from Tonk district of Rajasthan after aa dream came to them. As per the direction of the dream they had to go in the North direction and at night the rock fell from bullock cart and the stone was established which is now worshipped as the Shrine of Sh. Dada Dev Maharaj. The temple however was beautified in 1902 by Uddha Das, in its vicinity there is a beautiful pond whose soil is said to cure skin diseases as told by the people of the surrounding areas and a well maintained garden with a mela ground nearby it adds to the adorable aura of the temple.

There is a Dharamshala with four big halls and a dispensary. Medical camps are organized regularly. A school for disabled is also being run in the temple complex itself. Sunday is considered a pious day for his worship and pilgrims bring “gud” and Prasad for chadhava to the diety. May Dada Dev bless us all…….. “Jai Dada Dev
