Devi Durga was jointly created by the holy trinity - Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the preserver) and Shiva (the destroyer) to eliminate a demon named Mahishasur, who's treachery ruined peace and sanctity in the three worlds.
Known as the destroyer of evil and enforcer of good sense and morality, Durga, the ten-armed Goddess is worshipped during Navratri, a festival spread over nine days during four different times of the year.
Out of the four Navratris, the Chaitra and the Sharadiya are the most popular. The others are Aashada and Magha Gupta Navratri.
Durga, who represents the feminine form, is worshipped during Navratri - Nav meaning nine and Ratri meaning nights.
The sixth day of Navratra is dedicated to Mata Katyayani, the sixth form of Durga. Katyayani was born to Sage Katya of the Katya clan, and hence her name reiterates that same fact. The epitome of love and anger, the idols of Katyayani are portrayed as ones with four arms and three eyes, and mounted on a lion.
Here's a mantra dedicated to Goddess Katyayani:
कात्यायनि महामाये महायोगिन्यधीश्वरि । नन्द गोपसुतं देविपतिं मे कुरु ते नमः ॥
Katyayani Mahamaye Mahayoginyadheeshwari
Nandgopsutam Devipatim Me Kuru Te Namah
