Shiv vivaah ke liye raaji bhi ho gaye the aur vivaah ki taiyaariyaan hone lageen thi. lekin naarad muni chaahate the ki baanaasuran ka kumaari ke haathon vadh ho jaae. is kaaran Shiv aur devi kumaari ka vivaah naheen ho paaya. is beech baanaasuran ko jab kumaari ki sundarata ke baare mein pata chala to usane kumaari ke samaksh shaadi ka prastaav rakha. kumaari ne kaha ki yadi vah use yuddh mein hara dega to vah usase vivaah kar legi. donon ke beech yuddh hua aur baanaasuran ko mrutyu ki praapti hui. kumaari ki yaad mein hi dakshin Bhaarat ke is sthaan ko kanyaakumaari kaha jaata hai. maana jaata hai ki Shiv aur kumaari ke vivaah ki taiyaari ka saamaan aage chalakar rang birangi ret mein parivrtit ho gaya.
