Chamunda Devi temple History, Timings, Route info
As per the Legend, Sati Devi Daughter of Daksha Prajapathi married Lord Siva against her father’s wish. Daksha decided to perform Yagna inviting all Devas and excluded Lord Siva and Sati Devi. Sati Devi on knowing this reached her maternal home to advise her father. Daksha insulted Sati Devi in front of the guests. Angered Sati Devi raised high and immolated herself in the Yoga Agni. Lord Siva after collecting Sati’s Corpse danced the dance of destruction. Lord Vishnu sent his disc and made the Sati’s corpse into pieces. The body parts fell across Indian-subcontinent and emerged as Sakthi Peetas. It is believed that Sati Devi’s hair had fallen here.
