enter Kailas and create trouble. They were audacious enough to combat with
Nandini, the divine vehicle of the Lord, when denied admission. Their out bursts
marred the tranquility of the place. Appreachending some trouble, if the Lord
were to know of it, Hara prayed mentally to Goddess Gowri to punish the
intruders. There upon Gowri made her appearance and smashed the devils. As her
request was accomplished anon by the blessing by of Gowri, she was called
Harasiddhi thenceforward. Belief is current that whosoever worship her here with
earnestness under distress his wishes will be fulfilled as' the archamurti
Harasiddhi did in the past. The incarnations of Goddess Sakti are exhibited
along with the family goddess of King Vikramaditya, and hence received munificent
patronage which is greeting the eyes of the visitors in its grandiose sculpture and vast dimensions. Sacrifice of animals was in vogue and
particularly buffalo were preferred to appease the goddess to get merit. Later
legislation stopped this practice. Hence attraction for all sections of people.
In consequence its fame is mounting day after day.
It lies in Ujjain,
accessible by all types of vehicles.
