In Hinduism, Mahakali is a powerful and wrathful form of the goddess, often associated with destruction and the annihilation of evil forces. The Dasara festival, celebrated in many parts of India, symbolizes the victory of good over evil, and it is common for temples to emphasize the aspect of the goddess as a destroyer of demons during this festival.
