History of the Nav Chandi Fair
According to a myth, it is believed that Mandodari, the wife of Ravana was deeply devoted towards Goddess Chandi and in order to honour her, she built a temple at her birthplace, Meerut. Ever since that time, this festival is being celebrated by the residents of this place religiously and with true devotion. Other than this, whenever there is a mention about this fair, there is always a mention of the 10 great learning’s that are related to Goddess Parvati or Shakti. According to the Hindu Mythology, the father of Sati, King Daksh Prajapati invited all other kings and sages to a yagna accept his own son- in- law, Lord Shiva. Hearing this, Sati gets very angry and she seeks for the permission to go there from Lord Shiva, but he refuses because they were not officially invited. She gets really very angry and takes the form of dark energy. Lord Shiva tried to escape from such a fury and in order to stop him from running in all the 10 directions, she took ten forms. These different forms are Bhuvaneshvarti, Baglamukhi, Chinnamastaa, Dhumavati, Kali, Kamala, Tripura Bhairavi, Shodashi. Matangi and Tara. The ten different types of form that Mother Parvati took are known as the real powers of Lord Shiva.
