The Pitamaha, giving a patient hearing sympathized with their affliction, but expressed his inability to destroy him. Consoling sincerely, he advised them to approach Mother Amba. Directing the steps to her abode, they repeated their woeful tale. Moved visibly, She assured instant action. Sending them out, she emerged assuming the fiercest form with roudra exuding from her blood shot eyes and vengeance dripping from every pore of her fluttering frame, and entered the war field. Matanga was shocked to see such form, but being wicked and resourceful directed his armies against her. His asurasakti when asserted to the fullest extent, Mother felt jolted for a while. Then she summoned her powerful saktis like Varahi, Brahmi, Vaishnavi, Kumari, Indrani, Sambhavi, and with their strength she fell on the demon with unparalleled ferocity. Their united strength and unyielding tenacity at last scored victory over Matanga, who although proved more than a match in his strategy fell dead. Grateful people offered prayers and praised her valorous action in song. Heaving a sigh of relief, they enjoyed carefree life thenceforward. As Matanga was killed, it was a clean, grand victory to Amba; and so she was henceforth called Matangi. She is worshipped in a splendid shrine called the Bhavani temple. And for the advent of Bhavani to this place and making this an permanent abode in response to the desire of a devout brahmin lady, there is another fascinating story.
