NIRRITI
Also known as NIRRITA

Hindu Goddess of Destruction, Death and Decay

A terrifying dark figure in a black dress, she is the stuff of nightmares and loves pain and horribleness in all its forms.

Only bribery in the form of humble and frequent offerings will keep her looking the other way.

One more thing. She sometimes becomes he under the name NIRRITU.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Nirriti graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Nirriti 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 Nirriti statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Nirriti. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
