Brief History Of This Temple

Goddess Mahakali is also known as Rakt Dantika or Chamunda. Mahakali appeared to kill the demon Andhakasur. Andhakasur, the ruler of Ujjain in those days, was blessed with a power that every drop of his blood that touched the ground would produce a new Andhakasur. When Lord Shiva pierced him with his Trishul, Mahakali appeared and drank all the blood and ate all the new Andhakasurs. The demon finally accepted his defeat and the world became free of demons. Later to killing all demons Mahakali went more ferocious in the war field when Lord Shiva himself lays in between the dead bodies. Mahakali mistakenly steps on her husband chest and takes her original form. Pleased, Shiva bestowed upon her the epithet of 'one who vanquishes all'.
