When Goddess was fighting a fierce battle against Durgasur (Kindly refer Durga Devi), she released various forms of energy (called Shakti) from her body. These Shakti Devis released intense energy in form of fire balls to fight Durgasur and his army. (Kashi Khand, Chapter 72). Finally the battle was won.One of those Shaktis is Tripura Bhairavi. Devotees who worship this deity will attain success in their endeavours and they will gain mental strength. Out of more than 90 forms of Shaktis, only a few deities are present now. Many of their temples or idols have ceased to be in existence and one or two of them are inside private houses where public worship is not allowed.
