The heavenly triangle of the sanctuaries is connected with a well known story when Sati, little girl of Daksha Prajapati, immolated herself at the conciliatory spot Lord Shiva took the dead body of his better half and began strolling towards the Himalayas. The spots where the parts of her dead body fell are known as Kunjapuri, Surkanda Devi andChandrabadani and are in this way revered as Siddha Peeths.
Goddess Parvati is the partner of Lord Shiva. In her past birth, Goddess Parvati was known as Sati. She had hitched the Lord yet her dad King Daksha was not very satisfied. He had sorted out a Yagna, a profound social affair where offerings are made to Agni Dev (Fire God). He had deliberately not welcomed his little girl and her better half. At the point when Sati came to know about this, she was enraged and chosen to go uninvited. Master Shiva attempted to convince her to drop this thought however she was determined.
Ruler Daksha gave his motivations to Sati which was only open embarrassment of her significant other. Incensed by this, Sati hopped into the conciliatory fire and finished her life. Ruler Shiva was torn separated. He devastated and made ruin at the Yagna. At that point conveyed the remaining parts of Sati's body on his shoulder and moved the move of decimation Tandav which would in the long run wreck the Universe. While different renditions express that in distress, the Lord conveyed her body on his shoulders and strolled erratically in sorrow. He declined to finish the last customs.
Master Brahma, the maker of the universe felt that if Sati's body did not get appropriate incineration as indicated by the Hindu Shastra's then she couldn't take resurrection as Goddess Parvati. While Lord Vishnu was worried that Lord Shiva's pain would gradually bring about the decimation of the Universe. They couldn't control or face Lord Shiva's outrage so Lord Vishnu took his Sudarshan Chakra (Disk) and cut the body into pieces. As Lord Shiva voyaged her body part fell and last rituals were finished by the divine beings. The spots where celestial Mother's body parts fell is known as Shaktipeeth. Sanctuaries have been worked around it and venerated day by day. Individuals head out crosswise over mainlands to look for favors of Shakti.
