about bhadrakali temple

Covered in mystic legends and intriguing stories, the Bhadrakali Temple takes you back into the past. Legend has it that Ravana performed tapasya at Mount Kailash to please Lord Shiva and also sang Shiva Tandava Stotram in his sweet voice. Lord Shiva, pleased with the devotion, granted Ravana anything he wished for. Ravana in return asked for the Atmalinga and a wife who will be more beautiful than Uma, the wife of Lord Shiva. When Ravana was on his way home, he came across Lord Vishnu disguised as a Brahmin. On being asked by Lord Vishnu about the woman Ravana was carrying on his shoulders, Ravana narrated the entire episode. When he brought her down off his shoulders so that the Brahmin could look at her, Ravana was shocked. Lord Vishnu with his tricks had made Uma look tired and aged leading Ravana to abandon Uma there. At that moment, Lord Vishnu asked Uma to reside in Gokarna itself. The Bhadrakali Temple was built in honour of Uma and she is the presiding deity of this revered temple.
Visit the temple for its positive aura, peace and quiet.
