“Beautiful temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

With the road to Dantewada from Jagdalpur getting a lot better recently, the distance of 85 kms can easily be covered in around one hour fifteen minutes. However it is better to start early from Jagdalpur and come back in the afternoon after the Mandir Darshan.
Danteshwari temple is situated at the entrance of the town. As such the town is very small and there is nothing much to see. There is hardly any good eatery too.
But the temple is very quaint, situated on the banks of the Shankini and Dhankini rivers' confluence. Males visiting have to put on a yellow lungi while paying obeisance to goddess, women have no such restrictions. The temple as such is quite small and entry and exits are entirely hassle free.

“Nice Temple in Dantewada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Dantewada may be in news for wrong reasons for some years now , but this small and bewutiful town has one of the most reverred and well managed temples in Bastar region of Chhattisgarh. The temple compound is clean and very well maintained and free from any annoying elements. The temple structure is like a house without having ny pinnacle.The view of the idol Goddess Danteshwari is really divine. It gives you a sense of inner peace when you stand in front of her.
It is advisable to visit this temple if you are in Bastar. Its a 2 hours drive from the city of Jagdalpur through a very good Highway with picturesque hills and forests around. There is absolutely no fear of insurgency within the Dantewada town nor on the highway from Jagdalpur to Dantewada
