It is named after the sage Markandeya, who is believed to be the author of the Purana. The exact dating of the Markandeya Purana is uncertain, but it is generally believed to have been composed between the 4th and 8th centuries CE.
The Markandeya Purana consists of various sections or chapters, often presented as dialogues between the sage Markandeya and a rishi named Jaimini. It is primarily written in Sanskrit and contains around 9,000 verses.
The Purana covers a wide range of topics, including mythology, cosmology, genealogy, legends, rituals, and philosophical teachings. It contains stories and legends about various Hindu deities, such as Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva, and the goddess Durga. It also discusses topics such as dharma (righteousness), yoga, karma, and the nature of reality.
One of the most well-known sections of the Markandeya Purana is the Devi Mahatmya, also known as the Durga Saptashati or Chandi Path. It is a hymn dedicated to the goddess Durga and describes her various manifestations and her victory over the buffalo demon Mahishasura.
