Maha Kali Mandir is the most prominent temple in Reasi town situated in district Reasi of J&K state. It is located on a hilltop close to the Reasi Bus Stand in the heart of the main city. It is said that 300 years ago Kalika Mata came in the dream of Pandit Jagat Ram Sharma and indicated her presence in the form of a Pindi (stone) lying under ground on this hill. On excavation of the area the Pindi was found. Thereafter a small temple was constructed on the hill and Pandit Jagat Ram Sharma became the caretaker.
Over the years the temple has gained prominence due to a strong belief of the people in Kalika Mata. The local people have contributed to the development of this temple. The devotees visit the temple in large numbers during the days of Navratri. this temple is worth visiting.
