He rose against the Devas and subdued them. The seven worlds dreaded to hear his name. Goddess Durga was out to save the Devas. She observed tough penance and fought with Magisha for nine days and killed him. She was hailed ‘Magishasura Mardhini’ as a result. In order to mitigate the anger and to transform her frightful appearance, Magishasura mardhini decided to observe penance. She reached Srirangam temple. The temple priests at Srirangam who were unable to bear the pulsating rage of Devi, begged with her to move to a place not frequented much by people. Accordingly, Devi went to Samayapuram on the banks Cauvery. There she sat under a neem tree. Calling herself ’Gowmari’ Devi adorned herself with yellow clothes and concealed herself in soft flowers. She observed penance with fasting. The rage subsided. People in the vicinity raised a temple for her and began to worship her.
