Notable temples in India and Indonesia
Presumably, the section on notable temples in India and Indonesia is specifically about temples to Durga, not just temples in general.
I think it should be on the list because Vaishno Devi is devoted to Devi, which is referring to the ultimate divine goddess, and since Durga is one of the most revered versions of Devi, I feel it would be appropriate. As far as I understand it all Devi worship is not to Durga, but all Durga worship is to Devi, and being that Vaishno Devi is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites in all of India, it would seem fair to include it with a qualifier. I got a chance to visit the Vaishno Devi, and Durga images were very prevalent along the path. fordlikethecar (talk) 05:58, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
Regarding 'Notable temples of Goddess Durga in India': "Deori Temple near Ranchi, Jharkhand, India" is one of the famous and powerful Durga temple in Jharkhand. It should also be added in the list. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SATISH SAGAR (talk • contribs) 15:55, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
Conflict of Information
The Apple Dictionary function lists Durga as being "a fierce goddess, wife of Shiva, often identified with Kali. She is usually depicted riding a tiger or lion and slaying the buffalo demon, and with eight or ten arms." Doesn't that fly in the face of her being an "eternal virgin"? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:30, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
- I can not understand this properly. Providing more details might help! --Tito Dutta (Send me a message) 02:13, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
I want to clear that as per Devi Bhagwat Purana, Durga and Adi shakti are two different but the same. Durga / Parvati are complete incarnation of Maa Adi Parashakti. But Adi shakti is independent.
Adi (Endless) Para (beyond) Shakti (Energy), Energy is independent, but required to all includent Trimurti. So She came in the form of Goddess Durga/Parvati. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:27, 19 August 2012 (UTC)
What is up with the leading paragraph?
That massive wall of text has to be truncated. If it contains useful information, it needs to be cut into the body.
- I've removed the wall of text for now and restored the original version. Paris1127 (talk) 00:51, 9 August 2013 (UTC)
Kindly allow me to edit the page "Durga" as it is full of incorrect information, that which cannot be cited in any of the major Hindu scriptures. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Deepankar Mukherjee (talk • contribs) 17:42, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
Edit request on 12 October 2013
|This edit request has been answered. Set the
Notable temple of durga in Odisha please include the following temples to the list
Samaleswari temple, sambalpur,odisha sureswari temple,sonepur, odisha Maa shyamakali temple, bargarh, odisha tarini temple, keonjhar, odisha
- It isn't a matter of making a list, which should probably be a separate article anyway, but of finding references that show these temples are notable. Currently the list is entirely uncited and could simply be deleted. In fact, the whole article desperately needs more and better sources. Chiswick Chap (talk) 08:41, 12 October 2013 (UTC)
