Kamakhya Devi is one of the nine forms of Goddess Durga, situated in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.
Hindus worship the mother goddess Kamakhya at the Kamakhya Devi Temple, also known as Kamrup-Kamakhya. In Varanasi’s Kamachha district, this temple may be found. In Varanasi, the temple is well known. According to the legend, King Divodas of Kashi was an extremely pious and devout man who lived in Mandarachal and served as Lord Shiva’s representative.
Everyone in his kingdom was content and prosperous all around. He and Lord Brahma had come to an agreement that Devas and other celestial beings should avoid Kashi and not cause any trouble there while he was in power. Lord Brahma more or less agreed to it, but with one stipulation: King Divodas and all residents and visitors of Kashi must show themselves to be competent administrators.
All residents and visitors to Kashi should be treated with respect in their religious pursuits. The King agreed and provided good governance as a result. Lord Shiva was irritated at being absent from Kashi for so long, and he wished to cause King Divodas to make mistakes. As a result, he dispatched sixty-four Yoginis to cause havoc, but they were captivated by the beauty and serenity of Kashi, which appeared to be a part of heaven. They eventually settled in Kashi and established themselves in various locations throughout Kshetra. One of them was Kamakhya Devi.
