How Ambika rid Mumbai of the Mumbarkasur

Lost in the mists of time is a story of how Sri Mumbadevi, or 'Maha Ambe Aai' the Nagar Devi or the patron of the Patron Goddess of Mumbai, the commercial capital of India, manifested herself in Mumbai. 

An asura name Mumbarka had so terrorized the poor residents of Mumbai that they prayed to Lord Brahma and asked him to liberate them from the excesses of Mumbarkasur. Lord Brahma than invoked the Goddess Mahaamba and from Lord Brahma's body manifested Mumbadevi who was armed with celestial wepons and whose face shone with a divine light. 

When Mumba Devi appeared, Mumbarkasur fell at her feet and sought her forgiveness. He also requested her to assume his name. Mumba Devi agreed to do so and that is how she got her name. A grateful Mumbarkasur built a temple to the goddess, where she has been worshiped since ancient times by the Agris, Kolis and other original inhabitants of the island since time immemorial.    

May Mahaambika Mumbadevi bless us with wealth, health, happiness and love.
