Goddess Javalajjihva – Jawala Jihva

Goddess Javalajjihva or Jwala Jihva is a form of Goddess Durga which was responsible for the annihilation of Demon Raktabija. She is called Javalajjihva because in her heights of fury she opens her mouth to reveal a tongue which is in flames. It must be noted here that Javala Jihva is also one among the 108 names of Lord Narasimha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Information of Goddess Javalajjihva is very rare as she is one of the lesser known forms of Goddess Durga. Goddess Javalajjihva is depicted as four armed and she carries sword and other weapons associated with Goddess Durga. The color of her body is red and she has serpents coiled around her body. She rides a tiger.
