According to tradition, Lord Shiva began Tandava Nirtya while carrying Sati’s burned body, and wherever a piece of Sati’s limb fell, a Shakti temple eventually sprung up. The thigh of Sati Uma is reported to have fallen here during the process. With intense devotion, a symbolic stone impression is being worshipped. When thousands of believers travel great distances on Tuesday and Saturday, it is believed to be a lucky day. The shrine exudes a sense of divine sublimity that serves to calm visitors and strengthen their faith.
