The fight between the Hindu goddess Durga and the demon is described in various Sanskrit texts, which are well known to Hindus. The demon could change shape. He first appeared as a buffalo and was beheaded by Durga; the buffalo’s decapitated head can be seen lying on the ground. When the demon assumed human form, the goddess killed him again, this time using a trident.
