LOCATION OF LALITA GAURI

Lalita Gauri is present at Ck.1/67, Lalita Ghat. If one desires to walk on foot, he will have to travel upto Dasaswamedh by rickshaw and walk through the Ghats upto Lalita Ghat and climb the steps.  If the devotee is already in the Gullies in the vicinity, Nepali Pasupati Mandir is an important landmark.  However, Nepali Pasupati Mandir is not mentioned in Kashi Khand, as such the same is not covered here.

Lalita  Gauri is one of the 9 Gauris which are worshipped in Navratri falling in March-April (9 days preceding Ram Navami).
