Kamadhenu (Kamdhenu) cow and calf white metal idol
Kamdhenu is the divine cow goddess in which 330 million kinds of Gods stay.Some other names of Goddess Kaamdhenu are Surabhi, Shaval, Aditi and Kamudh. She was one of the nine divine blessings which came out during the Samudra Manthan and was gifted to Rishi Vashisht. It is believed that during the reign of King Vishwamitra the whole land was cursed with drought. He went to Rishi Vashisht Ashram for the solution. On arriving in the sacred place King Vishvamitra observed that Rishi Vashisht had prayed to Kamdhenu Goddess for arranging the food for all the persons that came along with the king. In turn to his surprise he saw that Goddess Kamdhenu had blessed all of them with delicious variety of food and drinks. Greed arose in the king’s heart and he tried to take the Goddess Kamdhenu to his palace by force. To which Rishi Vashisht showed resistance and pleaded him that if he really wished to have Goddess Kamdhenu for himself he would have to become a saint by heart and soul. Kamdhenu Goddess has two daughters known as ‘Nandni’ and ‘Patti’. Both were great worshipers of Lord Shiva. The place where ‘Patti’ worshipped Lord Shiva and attained salvation is known as ‘Pattishwar’ in Southern India. It is said that the river named after ‘Nandni’ use to flow with milk before the era of Kalyuga, which henceforth turned into water.
