    is the amalgamation of three different words, i.e., ‘Devi’ means Goddess, ‘Kanya’ means girl and ‘Kumari’ means unmarried or virgin. Thus she is the purest form in which Shakti resides. She is prayed to gain flexibility of mind. If a person is unable to perform an act or settle in the new circumstances, he worships the goddess to accept changes or bring about a change in his mentality or behavior.  Whenever a true devotee is blessed by the Goddess, he can feel tears in his eyes. This means his contemplation and devotion has been accepted by Devi Kanya Kumari.

    Legend

    A demon named, Banasur was very powerful and had gained power over the Gods. He was creating havoc in the universe and nothing and nobody was able to stop him. Ignorance and injustice became the part of life. To find peace and solace Gods started praying to VishnuVishnuVishnu
    Vishnu is one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus and is a part of Hindu Trinity,..
    as he was the protector of the universe but he said that Banasur could only be defeated by a virgin woman. He asked them to pray to Shakti. They performed fire sacrifices because of which Goddess in her truest form appeared before them and told them that she would annihilate the demon in the form of a virgin girl named Kanyakumari. She herself started performing penance.

    She was a beautiful goddess and when Lord ShivaShivaShiva

    heard about her beauty, he fell in love with her. They both wanted to get married to each other but then that would mean there would be no end to the rule of Banasur as Devi Kanya Kumari would no more be a virgin. Therefore sage NaradaNaradaNarada
    Narada, also popularly known as Narada Muni, is a great Vedic sage and is one of the most significant and iconic characters of the Hindus. 
    decided to intervene. Narada told both the parties to prepare for the wedding on a particular day at midnight as it was an auspicious time. Shiva left his abode to reach Kanyakumari and not to miss the auspicious time. Narada then took form of a cock and falsely heralding the break of dawn. Confused Shiva thought that the auspicious time was over and thus returned back. He was disappointed and so was Devi Kanya Kumari.

    Feeling disheartened as Shiva didn’t arrive to the venue, she threw away all the food prepared for the feast. She also decided to remain a virgin forever. Meanwhile Banasur heard about her beauty and decided to marry her. But the goddess rejected his proposal. He then tried to win her by force. He took out his arms. She was also ready with her divine discus with which she killed the demon. Before dying, Banasur realized his mistake and requested absolution for all the harmful acts he has done in the past. The goddess was filled with compassion and said that when he would take bath in the waters of Kanyakumari, he would achieve absolution. This boon was granted to him and is applicable for all the people who take bath in these waters.
