Kashi Khand, Chapter 70 mentions Varahi Devi and the devotees who worship this devi will never fall into any danger.

Kashi Khand, Chapter 45 states that Lord Shiva sent sixty four Yoginis to Kashi to create disturbance in the governance of King Divodas. However, the sixty four yoginis were totally enthralled by the beauty of Kashi and they decided to settle down in Kashi itself. Varahi is one of them.

It is worth mentioning that Varahi is a very powerful devi.
