Durga, in Sanskrit means "She who is incomprehensible
or difficult to reach." Goddess Durga is a form of Sakti worshiped
for her gracious as well as terrifying aspect. Mother of the Universe,
she represents the infinite power of the universe and is a symbol
of a female dynamism. The manifestation of Goddess Durga is said
to emerge from Her formless essence and the two are inseparable.
People come to mandir to take blessings of Maa Durga.
