The importance of Jyeshta Gauri has been described amply in Kashi Khand, Chapter 63. Lord Shiva said, in the Jyeshta Month (May 20 to June 20), eighth day after Amavasya (Shukla Paksha Ashtami), people should have darshan of Jyeshta Gauri.

If a girl, who may be most unfortunate, visits the Jyeshta Gauri Temple and prays with sincerity, she becomes most fortunate (Sowbhagyavati). It is stated that persons visiting Kashi and having darshan of Jyeshta Gauri will reach a high position in life (Kashi Khand, ibid).
