Maa Bana Durga

The image of Kantakadhi Gosani is a peculiar one, as she is standing by one of her legs. The other one is bent and Lord Vishnu is depicted removing the pin from this bent foot of the Devi. On the other side Lord Siva is seen standing. She is well known in the texts as ‘Vanadurga’ (Durga of the Forests). Here the Mahisasura is absent.
