51 Shakti Peeth : According to legend, Without the will of her father King Dacha, Sati married Lord Shiva. King Daksha decided to insult Shiva to take revenge of this. King organized a yagna where he invited every famous personality without inviting Lord Shiva and Sati. Sati heard about the fact and did not believe initially and went to the yagna to confirm. But Sati, being an uninvited guest, discovered the truth. Also, Daksha insulted Shiva. Sati was unable to bear her father's insults and she committed suicide by jumping into the yagna fire.

After being heard about his wife’s death Lord Shiva became mad and he then carried away Sati's body and started dancing all over the place like a lunatic. Lord Vishnu have taken the initiation to stop the Tandava Nritya which otherwise would have destroyed the entire world.

Lord Vishnu used a Sudarshan chakra to cut sati’s body in various small parts. Wherever the parts of Devi sati had fell down in various parts of the world, the devotees have constructed temples at the particular spots and have given the names of various Shakti peethas. These are the places for Hindu pilgrimage where people from different parts of the world visit and offers prayer.
