She is also known as Mahishasur Mardini, the slayer of the demon Mahishasur, who took the form of a buffalo. At the foot of the hill, from where one starts climbing the steps, there is the head of a buffalo, made in stone which is believed to be a demon. It is believed that the Devi Mahatmya, a sacred book which extols the greatness of Devi and her exploits was composed at this place by the sage Markandeya, who performed rigorous penance on a hill opposite the one on which the Devi resides, which is now named after him. The Devi Mahatmaya is to be read during the Chaitra  and Navratri , it is hymn which includes a number of mantras and describes the battle which take place between Durga Devi and the asuras. You will notice that most of the hindu scriptures are written in such a way that it strikes a chord with the common people. It was done by dramatising the basic essence of the thought, which was required to be communicated. So also with this hymn, what it conveys is that by praying to the devi with devotion, she assists in quenching one’s malefic thought process. Thus uplifting oneself spiritually.
