TuljaBhavani Temple History :

The temple of Bhavani at Tuljapur, along with the temples of Renuka at Mahur, Mahalaxmi at Kolhapur, and Saptashringi at Vani, forms one of Maharashtra’s four great Shaktipithas. The Tulja Bhavani temple is linked to numerous legends. One legend tells of a demon named Madhu-Kaitabh who wreaked havoc on the gods and humans.Unable to find a solution, they sought Lord Brahma’s assistance and, on his advice, turned to Goddess Shakti, who took the form of a destroyer and, aided by the other (Sapta) Mata Varaahi, Brahmi, Vaishnavi, Kaumaari Indraani, and Saambhavi, vanquished the demon and restored peace. According to legend, Bhavani defeated another demon who had disguised himself as a buffalo (Mahisha) and sought refuge on the Yamunachala Hill, which is part of the Balaghat mountain range.This hill is home to the Tuljabhawani temple. Another legend tells of a sage known as “Kardam.” Following his death, his wife “Anubuti” performed a penance on the banks of the river “Mandakini” for Bhavani mata to care for her infant child. The demon “Kukur” attempted to disrupt her penance, during which the Goddess came to the aid of “Anubuti” and killed the demon “Kukur.” Tulja Bhavani became the name of the Goddess Bhavani after that day.
