BHUVANESWAR - CHANDI MANDIR
Chandi is the house hold deity of the royal family of the rest-while rulers of
Kalinga desa. She was a much sought after deity, who guided the destinies of
kings and their kingdom in the past. No state or personal enterprise was ever
undertaken without offering worship to this mighty Chandi. And she guided them properly
and timely and made the rulers achieve what all they conceived and
according to legends is the fearful aspect of Mother Kali, created to kill
Mahishasura whose name caused nightmares to entire devagana. To meet the
super abundant strength and unheard of demonic atrocities of Mahishasura, she
emerged as an ashtabhuja ferocious Bhadrakali holding in her eight hands
invincible powerful arms that enabled her to destroy that dreadful Mahishasura.
She pierced her sharp trident into his chest and scored resounding victory in
the war theatre. And there by she gave respite to the suffering and the whole
worId rejoiced over tile death of that ruthless danava. So she deserves veneration high.
