Mother Guhya Kali, “The Secret Kali”, is one of the manifestations of
Parvati Goddess. She has eight arms and ten heads, 8 of which are in animals or bird form, signifying her cosmic status. Each of her eight arms holds a ritual object. She is adorned with jewels and a garland of skulls. Below her lies a dog gazing up at her and a reposing Bhairava (wrathful Shiva) above the plinth engraved with five heads of crowned deities. Sculpted images of Guhyakali are rare even though she is well loved by many Nepalese devotees.
