Shakti Temples- Pavagadh

Pavagadh in the centre of Gujarat has temples dedicated to goddesses Mahakali and Bhadrakali. According to a legend Jayasimhadev, last of the Patai Rayal rulers of the place was attracted during a Navratri festival to a beautiful woman taking part in the Garba celebration. The beautiful woman was none other than  goddess Kali, who on being requested by the king to be his prime queen, uttered a curse, as a result of which the Patai Raval lost his throne to Mahmug Begado, the Muslim Sultan of Gujarat.
