    Which goddess is she? Do you have a picture and where did you see the picture? – Sarvabhouma Jun 9 '18 at 8:20

    Quite possibly she is goddess Parvati herself , wife of lord Shiva. She is shown in lots of pictures holding Shiva-Linga in either one or in both hands – SwiftPushkar Jun 9 '18 at 8:46

It is Istha Kameswari Devi having four hands, in two hands having lotus flower and in other two hands one have shiva linga and other one have japa Mala. It is a form of devi Parvati. The very special thing is when you apply kumkum on the forehead of the Idol of the goddess you will feel like touching human skin in fact the Idol is of stone.

It is located in kurnool District, approximately 15km from srisailam, Andhra Pradesh.

Ista Kameswari Devi
