Chinna Masta Temple; a temple dedicated to the Goddess Kali image

Chinna Masta temple is entirely dedicated to Chinna Masta Devi. The denizens of the changu praise her as a local paraphrase of Goddess Kali. It is believed that she was there, ere the ancient times.

Since she is a tantric goddess, she took sacrifices. But, She gets her estimation because of her sacrifice. As per the myths, she beheaded herself to fed hungry Dakini and Varnini.

Chinna Masta

Almost every image of her shows that epigraphic story, where she retains her head in one hand. And, scimitar in the other hand. Plus, three spurts of blood mounting out from her neck and feeding Dakini, Varnini, and herself that blood.

This temple, over in the courtyard of Changu Narayan Temple has a single glided roof. And, in front of it, there are two miniature taleju bells. Moreover, it has two flags as well as guardians on both sides of the doors. The temple lies in the south-east corner of the courtyard.
