I go up the narrow stairs into the courtyard, where the museum workers are sunning themselves. They know me well by now and leave me to my solitude. The small rooms that were once the abode of the princely aristocracy, whether Rajput or Mughal, now contain some of the best surviving sculptures from earlier temples. They are neatly divided by epoch and gender. The rooms rarely have light, but the sculptures are well sheltered. A few other pieces of assorted unsorted sculpture stand in the sunlit courtyard.
The late-afternoon light glows on the red sandstone of the temples. Traces of destruction, vandalism, natural decay and manipulative reconstruction are evident in the temples’ histories. The Islamic invasions left their imprints on the sculptures: their faces are viciously disfigured, as Allah may not be depicted in the human form, particularly the feminine.

She is a kumari (unconsorted) in her dark Krishna avatar. The most powerful male god-demon, Maheshasur (mahesh = maha, great, ish = god, asur = demon), asks her hand in marriage. She replies that he must first defeat her in battle. The male god-demon received special powers when he was parthenogenically born from the matrika called Mahisha (the great goddess), hence his name, Mahesh (the great god). He can regenerate himself each time his blood falls on the earth. A great war takes place, and each battle is won by the kumari as Maheshasurmardini (the killer of Maheshasur), along with her band of yoginis—who drink Mahesh’s blood just before it touches the earth.
