TAMRESVARI

The king of Gaur accepted his friendly proposal and agreed to forward to Ratnadhvaj pots of Ganga water in, exchange for regular supply of water from Parasuramakunda. A son of Ratnadhvaj was also kept with Gaur Raja for study. Unfortunately, the prince died in Bengal and being ignorant of the funeral customs of the Chutiyas, sent the corpse to Ratnadhvaj. Ratnadhvaj was then building a palace at Sindhuksetra.

As the corpse was received by him there the city was named Sa-diya (place where the corpse was given).The religious practices of the Chutiyas were 'ghastly' in character. They worshipped different forms of Kali with the help of their tribal priests called Deoris. A dreadful conception of Kali came to be developed during this period. In this form, she was worshipped by the Chutiyas and was popularly known as Kesai Khati (eater of the raw flesh) because of the annual sacrifice at her temple.
