About Surkanda Devi Temple

According to the mythology, the origins of the Surkanda Devi temple can be attributed to Goddess Sati, wife of Lord Shiva who immolated herself in her father Daksha’s sacrifice when he embarrassed Shiva by not inviting the couple to the Yajna. Enraged by the death of Sati, Shiva wandered all over the region and performed tandav (dance of cosmic destruction). Feared the heaven Gods requested Lord Vishnu to stop Shiva. Lord Vishnu uses his discus sudarshana to destroy the corpse of Sati and pieces of her body fell all over the region, which are known as Shakti Peeths.
