Mahakali Temple:

Beyond time Mahakali is known as one of the form of the Goddess Durga and Kali it is believed that she is the force of anger and is a greatest aspect of Durga or Adi parashakti whom many Hindus hold as a Divine Mother, and therefore her colour is black.

In various place you might have seen she is shown standing on the prone i.e dead body of Lord Shiva. Indian people believe/interpreted it in various ways but the most common is that Mahakali (Goddess) represents Shakti (Power), the power of creation, time and death in the universe and Lord Shiva is the God of consciousness, which is inert in and of itself.

In the ancient days, it was a traditional to sacrifice a Buffalo after every 14 years which is called BHAINSA BALI by the local people. It was believed by the local people that if they will sacrifice a Buffalo to Goddess, they will make her happy and she will protect the valley and local people for next 14 years.
