DURGA
Also known as DURGHA

A picture showing the legend of DURGA taken from our Indian mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Indian Gods, Indian Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Warrior Goddess, and really great at killing demons.

She has lots and lots of arms and armaments! You name it: Discusses, thunderbolts, flares, skulls, words, snakes and drums.

She is a goodie at heart, but when you take on 120 million demons at a time all mounted on elephants you can't afford to mess around.

See also UMA, and if you fancy the idea of an alternative reincarnation, try KARNI-MATA.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Durga graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Durga movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Durga statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Durga. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
