This temple is dedicated to Goddess Durga. It was built after Badri Bhagat (one of the great devotees of Mother Goddess) who saw an idol hidden underneath the ground at the place where the temple stands in one of his dreams. The temple got its name when devotees offered flags in the temple to get their wishes fulfilled. It is believed that the original idol of the Goddess is established safely on the ground level of the temple.
