UCHAITHA

It may be mentioned here that Durga and Kali are the manifestations of Mahasakti. Kalidasa ultimately became the court poet of Vikramaditya who was known as Chandra Gupta II. We need not enter into thehistorical controversy regarding the age of Kalidasa or the age of Vikramaditya.The temple faces the east. It has a round dome. The temple is on the edge of a tank. The tank is a small reservoir with flights of steps to reach the water.

The temple appears to be a recent structure. At the entrance to the temple there is a verandah measuring 10 feet by I2. Above this there is a room for the goddess Durga which s about 8 feet by 10 feet.There is also an image of thegoddess Durga in black stone about 2 feet high. A lotus flower can be seen on the back of a lion and tile goddess is sitting on it.

There is Brahma on the left and Moon on the right side. There is an image, 6 inches high, of the goddess Kali, on the left side of the goddess Durga. All the four arms of the goddess Durga are cut off and the head is missing. The image is said to have been desecrated. Some small images of Ganesha, Shiva, Vishnu, Lakshmi and Hanuman are on the right side of the goddess Durga. They are of black stone.
