    as far as i know, this godess has 7 names. the symbol at the top with the tongue out is the symbol of 'Godess of Sacrifice' namely Kali Mata. the idol on the stone below is one of the 7 forms. Different states worship the godess with difft. names, e.g. Amba Devi in Gujarat, Durga Mata in Bengal, etc.

    In this form, this Goddess is called Durga or Shakti. She has innumerable other names, as the previous commentor has mentioned. She is the universal Mother Goddess, closely attached to nature. In this aspect, she protects her devotees while destroying the demons that plague the world.
    Another interesting feature in this picture is the Nag-devta, the snake deity, which is worshipped throughout South India. It's not common to see this in North India.
