CHAMUNDA NANDIKESHWAR

The Daityas deified In-dra and other Gods. The Gods were terrified of the Daityas and resorted to Jadrangal village and propitiated Jagadamba Devi. The Devi was pleased and promised to rescue them from the Daityas.

She created a Devi out of her body, a beautiful person Kaushika. Kaushika was given the assignment of destroying Shumbh and Nishumbh. The two Daityas heard of her beauty and wanted to bring her to them. They failed to persuade her to come to them through a doot (messenger) who was scornfully sent away. Kaushika sent word through the messenger that she could only be won by a war.

A dreadful war started. Kaushika Devi created 'Kalika' Shakti from her forehead and Kalika cut off the heads of Chund and Mund, two brave and fearless commanders of the two Daityas.
