Shakti Peetha History:

There was a great king named Daksha Prajapati he was the son of Lord Brahma. He had 27 daughters and Sati Devi is one of them. Sati Devi married Lord Shiva. When Dashka entered the arena of a yaga performed by Agni, every one except Lord Shiva stood up with respect. Daksha was insulted by Lord Shiva’s behavior. Later, when Daksha himself performed a Yaga, he did not invite his daughter or son-in-law. Although Sati felt bad about the non-invitation, she wanted to attend the yaga against Lord Shiva’s wish. When Sati, attended the Yaga. no one cared about her and she felt insulted by the actions of her sisters and parents. Then when her father started abusing her husband, she couldn’t control her feelings and sacrificed herself instead of yagna creating Agni of the earth with the right thumb of her foot. Knowing this, Lord Siva pulled a bunch of Jhatha out of his head and hit him. In the ground. From there Lord Veerabhadra was born and ran to yaga’s place and killed Daksha by chopping off his head. Later, Shiva went to the place and took the fire Sati body and started dancing with it. The world was terrified of this Tandava Nritya and to stop this Nritya, Vishnu used his Sudarshan chakra and completely cut Sati’s body into pieces. These body parts fell in various places in India and Srilanka. Wherever these parts fell, the places are called Shaktipeethas. There are 18 of these places and they are called Ashta (8) Dasa (10) Shaktipeethas.
