In Hinduism, Durga is a fierce warrior goddess, sometimes thought to be an aspect of the great goddess Mahadevi, as well as the consort of Shiva. She wields all of the weapons of Hindu gods. Durga’s worship is widespread in the Kathmandu Valley, especially during the fall harvest when Durga rituals abound.
