is a corrupt from of Kamsakali. Legends say that she was born to Yasoda and
predicted early death of Kamsa, when he tried to kill her on this spot forming
the jail, where Devaki and Vasudev were imprisoned. This place is deemed very
sacred and auspicious for worship. The story goes that there was a Jain temple
and Bouddha Vihar in the dim past and later were converted into a temple by
Hindus. It is named Kankah Tila after building a temple for Kankali devi. Due to
ravages of time, the temple went out of existence. And the ruined site was
bought by a pandit called Tularam from Raja Sate Lakshmi Das.
As he could not
renovate by himself, he thought of raising a garden and started digging
operations. And lo! he heard sounds from unknown place - "Stop, Stop".
It was the Mother's voice and she did not like desecration of that holy spot.
Disregarding the aerial voice, he continued only to meet his death in a short
period of five days. It caused tremors in the public and none dared to do any
damage to the ruined shrine. Even before Tularam's effort, the then owner Raja
sate Lakshmana Das endeavored to build a temple and install the image of his
choice after demolishing the temple He too could not, due to mysterious reasons.
