Katyayani is the sixth form amongst Navadurga worshipped during the Navratri celebrations. To destroy the demon Mahishasura, Goddess Parvati has taken the form of Goddess Katyayani. It was the most violent form of Goddess Parvati. In this form Goddess Parvati is also known as the Warrior Goddess. It is believed that the planet Brihaspati is governed by Goddess Katyayani.

Goddess Katyayani rides on the magnificent lion and is depicted with four hands. Goddess Katyayani carries lotus flower and sword in her left hands and keeps her right hands in Abhaya and Varada Mudras.

Mother Katyayani is first mentioned in the Taittiriya Aranyaka part of the Yajurveda. Skanda Purana mentions her being created out of the spontaneous anger of Gods, which eventually led to slaying the demon, Mahishasura, mounted on the lion given to her by Goddess Parvati. This occasion is celebrated during the annual Durga Puja festival in most parts of India.

Another legend says, she was born as a daughter of Katyayana Rishi, born in the Katya lineage, thus called Katyayani, "daughter of Katyayana". In Kalika Purana, it is mentioned that it was Rishi Kaytyayana who has first worshipped her, hence she came to be known as Katyayani. She is a demonstration or apparition of the Durga and is worshipped on the sixth day of Navratri festival.
