Goddess Ashwarooda emanated from Goddess Tripura Sundari. Once an asura (demon) called Bhandasura wreaked havoc in the universe, tormenting Devas (demi-gods). Bhandasura was blessed that he could be killed by a woman who wouldn't have born from another woman's womb. Tripura sundari, who is also an aspect of Goddess Parvati, the wife of Hindu God Shiva, created a Goddess from her Pasha (noose). From her noose emanated a Goddess with a cavalry of horses. She was riding a horse and hence, named as Ashwarooda. She holds a golden rod in her hand called as Dandam. The Dandam controls mind and senses. Ashwarood with her Dandam defeated Bhandasura.
She is depicted as four-armed, holding dandam, lotus, noose, and riding a horse named Aprajita.
