Celestial Maiden

Deva Kanya - A celestial maiden descending upon the earth for a vacation. Our puranas and itihasas mention that though swargalokam (the heavens) contain everything a man could ever wish for, the celestial beings often come to earth to enjoy the beauties of nature. They like to visit the beautiful waterfalls, they come to offer their obeisance to the Gods in the temples on earth, they come to look at the kings and princes who are famed to be good and courageous and favour them with their love. But they are also very temperamental, they are as notorious for their beauty as they are to curse those who offend them.
