Many times in our stories Lakshmi Saraswati and Durga are mentioned.

In this article, I will tell you about three main goddess Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Durga.
Hinduism has a great place for females and this comes from our originator Kushmanda Ma who was the first being in this universe.
She created all the god almighty: Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu.
She also created Saraswati, Mahalakshmi, and Sati then who are these three forms of her we are talking about.

She is dressed in red attire and holds, lotus, Kalash, and gold coins.
Her Abhaya Mudra symbolizes divine protection and fearlessness.
The owl which is found near to her feet is considered to be a vehicle of her.
