Tuljapur is a famous pilgrimage of Devi Bhavani popularly called as Tulja Bhavani. According to one legend during Krita Yuga there was a ashtakan named Kardam who was well-versed in the Vedas.
Bhavani Ashtakam – In sanskrit with meaning
He had a devoted wife named Anubhuti. However as fate had it, Kardam passed away plunging Anubhuti in a sea of grief.
She decided to perform Sati and immolate herself but an ethereal voice prevented her and asked her to take care of her small ahtakam. Anubhuti discharged her duties and brought up the son as a self-dependent young man. Then she severed the ties of the world and as a sanyasa went to perform penance in Mount Meru.
Bhavani Ashtakam of Adi Shankaracharya – Slokas, Traslation, Meaning
One day the demon king Kukoor saw her and became charmed by her beauty. Ashtakma told her to marry him but when rebuffed by Anubhuti started using his force to take her away. Anubhuti prayed to the Goddess in that distress. The Goddess appeared before her and a terrific battle ensued with the demon king.
Finally Devi Bhavani killed the demon. She then told Anubhuti to ask bhavnai a boon. Anubhuti asked the boon that she should be able to see and worship Her whenever she desired.
Granting the boon the Devi made Her abode at Yamunachala in the Sahyadri mountains.
