Adra Vanvasini Lehra Devi Temple is a Siddha Shaktipeetha, which is situated on the bank of river Pavah( now confined to a narrow Nala/stream). The place is said to have derived its name from the erstwhile Lehra estate. A Local fair at this place is held every year on the occasion of Ram Navami and Dushehra and people from far places visit the temple during this period. It is believed that when Pandavas were wandering in the forest during their exile years and they were supposed to live for one year in disguise, during that period they spent most of their time in this thick 'Adra Van'. Arjun worshiped 'Van Devi' here and was blessed with many super natural powers by the Goddess.
