Sthala purana:

Once upon a time there were two demons named Chanda and Prachanda. They conquered the entire gods and they attącked Kailasa too. At that time Shiva and Parvathi are playing dice. Chanda and Prachanda defeated Nandi. They are destroying Kailasa. Shiva meditated on Shakti. She appeared in the form of Hara siddhi and kílled the demons.

Hara siddhi is described as the Shakti of Tripurantaka. She is Mangala chandi, who gave courage to Lord Shiva to kíll Tripurasuras.


Every year in the month of Ashviyja(October) Navaratri festival will be conducted in Harsiddhi temple.
