MAA CHANDI DEVI
Chandi Devi also known as Chandrika is the presiding deity of the Mata Chandrika Devi Temple. As per the legends, the demon kings Shumbha and Nishumbha captured the kingdom of heaven overthrowing Indra (God-King) and banished as the Gods from heaven. After a lot of prayers by the gods, a goddess emerged from Parvati. She was said to be an exceptionally beautiful woman. Shumbha was amazed by her beauty and desired to marry her. On being refused, Shumbha sent his demon chiefs Chanda and Munda to kill her. They were killed by goddess Chamunda who originated out of Chandrika's anger. Shumbha and Nishumbha together tried to kill Chandrika but they were slained by the goddess instead. It is said that Chandrika Devi rested at the top of Neel Parvat for a short while. Hence a temple was built here to testify her legend.
