On Tritiya, Goddess Chandraghanta is worshipped. The name comes from the fact that after marrying Lord Shiva, she began adorning her forehead with half a Chandra.
The vehicle of Maa Chandraghanta is a lion. This Maa Durga avatar demonstrates that she can be both compassionate to her devotees and terrifying to her enemies.
या देवी सर्वभूतेषु माँ चंद्रघंटा रूपेण संस्थिता।नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नम:।।
Jaitpuri is the location of the Chandraghanta Devi mandir in Varanasi. It is located at J 7/2. Digiya Rd, Jaitpura, Varanasi.
