Goddess Chandraghanta is the Devi form worshiped on the third day of Navrati Festival. The goddess is named Chandraghanta as she wears the semi-circular moon (Chandra) which appears like a bell (Ghanta) on the forehead. In this form Maa Durga depicts her unprecedented image of bravery.
Goddess Chandraghanta is represented with 10 arms with each hand holding different weapons. The goddess mount is a tiger. The four right hands of the Chandraghanta Maa are seen holding Japa Mala, Dhanush, Arrow, and lotus flower. The fifth hand is showing Abhaya Mudra. While the devi’s four left hands are holding Kamandal, Sword, Gada and Trishul. The fifth left hand shows Varada Mudra.
Chandraghanta Durga possesses the greatest valor to fight against demons.
