Mangala Gauri Gaya History
As per the folklore, Sati Devi daughter of Daksha Prajapati married Lord Siva against her father’s wish. Daksha thought of taking revenge on Lord Siva for which he decided to perform Yagna. Daksha invited all Devas excluding Lord Siva. Sati who came to know about this Yagna reached her Paternal home advising her father. Daksha insulted Sati before the guests. Angered Sati Devi immolated herself in the Yogagni. Lord Siva who came know to the death of Sati raised high and ordered Kala Bhairav to destroy Yagna and kill Daksha. Kala Bhairav and Kali reached Yagna along with Siva Ganas and destroyed Yagna place and beheaded Daksha’s. Lord Siva after collecting Sati Devi’s corpse danced the dance of destruction. Lord Vishnu sent his Chara and made Sati’s body into pieces to protect the Universe from this destruction. The places fell across Indian Subcontinent and these places are known as Sakthi Peetas. Sati Devi’s breast was fallen here.
