Is it her permanent aspect? Not at all. She is Kamadhenu too. She is the family deity of almost all the Maharastrians and was the first among the adorable Sakti devatas to receiving honours from her votaries. The Peshwas for example, did nothing without visiting this Sakti Pitha and praying for inspiration and benediction. Although there are many Saktipithas in the land of Maharashtra, like Mahalakshmi of Kolhapur, Mahamaya Renuka at Mahur, Jagadamba at Saptshring and Ambejogai at Osmanabad, this Bhavani is popular as a powerful Goddess who ignites heroism in men and advocates righteous indigation in dealing with savages in royal robes and blood - suckers on the saddle with torch in one had and sword in another. The temple built on the Yamunachala by Viswakarma at the behest of Brahma according to legends has several unique features that bid instant visitation; for, it is this Jaganmata who has been staying here at the instance of an ardent devotee Anubhuti by name in the dim past; it is this Mother who played a dominant role to keep aloft the Maharashtra banner; it is for this Bhavani, Brahma commissioned Viswakarma to build a shrine; it is for this Mother, the Kallola thirtha - the repository of the waters of all the rivers in the Punya Bharat was created.
