Worship of the primeval energy, Shakti, in the form of the mother Goddess is seen in the four Shakti Peethas of Maharashtra – Bhavani with her seat at Tuljapur, Mahalakshmi at Kolhapur, Mahamaya Renuka at Mahur and Jagadamba atSaptashrungi, and also in Tamil Nadu (Periyapalayam)Sri Bhavani Amman. Other Shakti temples in the state are those atAmbejogai and Aundh. (also see Daksha Yagna).
Bhavani was the tutelary deity of Shivaji, the valiant Maratha ruler and is held in great reverence throughout the state of Maharashtra. Bhavani is considered to be an embodiment of Ugra or ferocity, as well as a Karunaswaroopini – filled with mercy. A number of castes, sub-castes and families from Maharashtra consider her their family deity or Kuldevta. The Bhavani temple in Tuljapur is located on a hill known as Yamunachala, on the slopes of the Sahayadri range in Maharashtra near Sholapur. The temple entrance is at an elevation and visitors need to ascend a flight of steps to reach the shrine. Historic records speak of the existence of this temple from as early as the 12th century CE. Bhavani is worshipped in the form of a 3-foot-high (0.91 m) granite image, with eight arms holding weapons, bearing the head of the slain demon, Mahishasura. Bhavani is also known as Tulaja, Turaja, Tvarita, and Amba. Legend portrays that a demon by the name, Matanga, wreaked havoc upon the devas and the humans who approached Bhrahma for help. Upon his advice, they turned to the Mother Goddess, Shakti, who took up the form of the destroyer; and powered by the other (Sapta)-Maataas Varaahi, Bhrahmi, Vaishnavi, Kaumaari, Indraani, and Saambhavi, vanquished him for peace to reign again. Legend also describes that Bhavani vanquished another demon who had taken the form of a wild buffalo Mahishasura and took abode on the Yamunachala hill, which is now home to the temple. Four worship services are offered each day here. The festivals of significance here are Gudi Padwa in the month of Chaitra, Shriral Sashti, Lalita Panchami, Makara Sankranti, and Rathasaptami. The deity is taken out in procession on Tuesdays. Navaratri is also celebrated with great fanfare, and it culminates in Vijaya Dasami. Sri Bhavani Devi is Adhi Parashakti herself. The name Bhavani denotes various meanings. Bhavani- Bhava(Shiva)ni- Internal Power of Lord Shiva Bhavani- Parvathi According to Lalitha Sahasranamam, Bhavani means Detiy who always helps devotees, and who gives Mukthi. Great Sage and Guru Aadhi Shankara says, “A Person who recitates the name, Bhavani, with true devotion thrice every day will not acquire Sorrow, Sin, Illness & Unexpected Death.” People occasionally confuse Bhavani devi with Renuka devi; however, the story of Bhavani devi is different from Renuka devi. One of the Great Purana Devi Bhaghavatam says Bhavani Devi is the original form of Aadhi Parashakti and Sister Of Shri Krishna, Since Maha Vishnu did Penance to get Devi’s help for his Krishna Avatar, Devi is born to Yashodha As Maha Maaya devi (in Tamil Magamaaye), That is why Bhavani amman holds Sanghu (Conch)& Chakram (Wheel) which resembles Vishnu, Her Appearance actually denotes She is the Sister of Vishnu Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhavani
