Rajarajeswari Besha of Maa Bharakali

Maa Bhadrakali appears as RAJARAJESWARI for the devotees in the 3rd day of Saptamatruka Mahajagnya during Kali-Puja, mounting a lion and elephant and looks sublime in her queenly pink attire. Maa dazzles in all gold and silver ornaments and truly looks like a Rajarajeswari. Maa holds the Conch (represents the first sound OM), Discus (represent the chakra or the mind), Lotus (represents the fertility and all creation), and a Mace (represents mental and physical strength) in her four hands giving a strong message that SHE is the source of all strength and creation.

It is believed the glory remains intact with the darshan on this day.

During seven days of Kali Puja, Maa Bhadra Kali appears in different attires in different days for her devotees and BEDAMAATA is the first among those. 

As per the name (Bedamata means the mother of all Vedas), Maa is being worshipped as the source of all knowledge, and it's believed that Maa blessed his devotees with a whole lot of knowledge.

On this day maa appears in all yellow. Her face appears as yellow with yellow clothes and yellow ornaments I.e. gold. Maa comes to the earth mounting her swan and used to sit on a lotus flower.

She appears in four arms with Mali(kind of garland) in the right hand and Sankha (conch shell) in left. It is also believed that, in Deepawali, like the light illuminates the darkness, Maa illuminates all ignorance and fills with the light of wisdom.

Saptamatruka Besha of Maa Bhadrakali (Odia: ସପ୍ତମାତୃକା ବେଶ) is seven forms of Adi Shakti. During the Saptamatruka Mahayagnya Maa Bhadrakali appears in seven forms every day.

Saptamatruka Besha of Maa Bhadrakali - ସପ୍ତମାତୃକା ବେଶ

Bhadrakali Temple is located on the outskirts of the revenue village Aharapada which is at a distance of 8 km away from Bhadrak town in the south-west direction. The popular belief is that the name of the Town has been derived from the name of the deity.

The statue of Goddess is of black granite and is seated in lotus posture on a lion. The temple remains open for visitors and devotees every day from 6.30 am to 1 pm and again from 3 pm to 9.30 pm.

As per the nomenclature of the goddess, one tends to believe that it is the goddess Kali who is being worshipped in this Bhadrakali Pitha. However, since the deity is seated on a lion, one school of thought has opined that the goddess can be no other than the goddess Durga.

According to legends originally Bhadrakali was worshipped inside a cave in the Meghasana hill of Mayurbhanj district by a sage named Tapasa Rushi. After the death of the sage, one of his pupils namely Bhadranatha brought the goddess to Bhunyamahalla of Bhadrak.

To protect the deity from Kalapahad, she was again transferred to the present place by the Dikshit. Mostly during Vijaya Dashami and Deepavali crowds gather for seeking the blessings of a benevolent mother.
