SHYAMA KALI-MANDI

Introduction

At the top of Mandi town there is a temple of Shyama Kali deity, which is another manifestation of the consort of Lord Siva. It. is said that the divine s use once started dancing and in her joy she lost herself and went on with a fierce dance putting the three worlds in danger. Siva, her husband, was approached to do something and Siva quietly laid himself on her route of dance.

When, Kali had put her feet on prostrated Siva she came to herself and stopped. In this manifestation the spouse Kali is painted black oil the face and she looks fierce with her garland of skulls and tongue protruding out of remorse for treading on her husband's body.
