Maa Chamunda Devi

The mythology of Maa Chamunda Devi has been chronicled in “Durga Sapt-Shati’.The Chamunda Devi Temple is located  in the District Kangra,  Himachal Pradesh a North Indian State. It stands on the banks of the famous Baan Ganga River, the temple is housed with extremely sacred idol of Chamunda Devi, and as such the idol is wrapped by a red cloth. The location of this sacred temple is also significant since it is believed to be the same spot where the Mata or the Maa Kali assassinated the demon kings Shumbh and Nisumbh. The two generals were namely Chanda and Munda. It is their name that gave Goddess Kali, a new name called Chamunda.
