Durgiyana temple, a Hindu temple modelled like Harminder Sahib  was constructed in 1908.   It is also surrounded by a holy lake and the temple is known Durga Mata temple or Lakshmi Narayan temple as it houses both deities. The temple seen across the bridge is Lakshmi Narayan temple.  There are 2 more shrines inside  for Ram and Krishna . They are seen in their Durbar.
Ma Durga temple  with Bara Hanuman and Siva temple are  situated on the right side of this Golden temple . Maa Durga temple is about 700 years old. There are many deities inside this temple.
The temple is about 2 -3 Kilometers from Harminder Sahib and can be reached easily as many cycle and auto rickshaws ply here.
Photography is very much allowed inside the temple.
