Kul Devi is the goddess traditionally worshipped by a family.

We are Chatrala Vyas our Kul Devi is Bhuvaneshwari. There is a Temple of Goddess Bhuvaneshwari in Gondal, Gujarat state and is considered as one of the Shakti Pith.

Once upon a time our ancestors who were family members of Rup ji, Mahashankar and Ramchandra were returning home in a bullock care at late night, on the way they saw 3 young girls walking on the road by this they got surprised and asked the girls where they were going so late at night and were they not scared?. On this the girls replied that they don't get scared because they were goddesses and told our ancestors that they wished to be seated in their house.

Our ancestors asked them as to what is the proof that they were goddesses? On this they replied that on the next they if they found a symbol of Trishul and Yantra in their house then consider them as goddesses.

In Rup ji's house there was a Trishul and Yantra of Goddess Kali Maa, in Mahashankars house there was Trishul and Yantra of Goddess Bahuchar Maa and in Ramchandras house there was Trishul and Yantra of Amba ji.

Thus, they were worshipped by Rup ji, Mahashankar and Ramchandra's family members and their future generations misunderstood them as Kul Devi but, originally our Kul Devi is Goddess Bhuvaneshwari.
