about chhinnamasta temple

The Chinnamasta Temple gets its name from the fact that the primary deity, Goddess Chinnamasta (an incarnation of Goddess Kali)  is depicted as holding her own severed head with three jets of blood sprouting from it, one of them feeding her own severed head, and the other two feeding her two attendants. The goddess is shown standing on the copulating bodies of Kamdev and Rati, on a lotus bed.

The temple is conspicuous in its typical tantric architectural style. Surrounding the main temple, there are several smaller shrines dedicated deities like Lord Hanuman, Lord Shiva, Lord Surya, etc.
