Sheetala Chaukia Dham is a famous ancient temple of Jaunpur and is dedicated to Goddess Sheetala Mata. During Hindu period the area was under the rule of Yadavas. It is believed that they only built this temple as a mark of respect towards the Goddess of their Clan (Kul Devi), perhaps initially the idol of Sheetala Devi was installed on a small platform/chauki hence the temple’s name Chaukia Dham.
