Shakti Peeth

Jawala Devi Temple

According to legend, Lord Shiva's consort Sati once burnt herself alive in Yagna to avenge an insult to Lord Shiva. The distraught Shiva picked her corpse and gyrated his horrified dance. Then Lord Vishnu unleashed his Chakra and cut the Sati's body into fifty one pieces to save the earth from Shiva's wrath.All the fifty one places - where parts of Sati's body fell, became known as Shakti Peeths
Location : Kangra Distt. (Himachal Pradesh - India)
Near by attraction : Brajeshwari Devi Temple, Chamunda Devi Temple

It is believed that Sati's tongue fell at the place where this temple is situated. Devi manifest as tiny flames that burn flawless blue through fissures in the age-old rock.
