|Her temple was
at Sadiya and she was called Tamresvari Devi (the goddess of the copper temple). Dr.
Kakati considers that she is the same goddess as Dikkaravasini whom the Kalika Purana
describes as the presiding deity of north-eastern Assam.
The goddess Dikkaravasini has two forms Tiksna Kanta (dreadfully attractive) and
Lalita-Kanta (gracefully attractive). Tiksna Kanta is black, potbellied and with one lock
of matted hair (Eka-jata). She is also called Ugratara. Her attendants are Bhaga, Subhaga,
Camunda, Karala, Bhisana, and Vikala-all dreadful names.
She is to be worshipped in general like goddess Kamakhya,
but her most delectable offerings consisted of strong spirituous liquor, human sacrifice,
modaka, flesh, curry, coconuts and sugarcane. These sacrifices were offered both on
regular occasions and also to avert calamities, such as cholera, small pox, etc.
