Bhaumeshwari – About Goddess Bhaumeshwari

Goddess Bhaumeshwari is the mother of Mangal Grah (Mars) one of the Navgrahas. Some people consider her as a manifestation of Mother Goddess Shakti. Some consider her to be a manifestation of Mother Earth.

Mangal Grah was born when Shiva was fighting Antakasur. A drop of sweat from Shiva that fell on earth gave birth to Mangal. Thus Bhaumeshwari is another for Mother Earth.

A temple dedicated to Goddess Bhaumeshwari is located in the Mangalnath Temple complex in Ujjain.
