Overview

Maya Devi Temple is a famous religious pilgrim site located in Haridwar of Uttarakhand state. This temple is one of the 51 Shaktipeethas. This holy temple is dedicated to "Goddess Maya". Haridwar was formerly called Mayapuri in the name of Maya Devi. According to legend, once the goddess Sati's father Raja Daksh organized a grand yajna, in which he had invited all deities, except Lord Shiva. The yajna had the place of all the gods except Lord Shiva. Seeing this insult of Lord Shiva, Goddess Sati jumped into the yajna kund. Upon hearing the news of jumping in the yajna of Goddess Sati, Lord Shiva happened indignantly and cut off the head of King Daksh. Lord Shiva, while mourning, kept the body of Sati on the shoulder and began Taandav. All the gods began to urge Lord Vishnu to calm Lord Shiva. After that Lord Shiva raised the body of Goddess Sati on the shoulder and rotated in all four directions, During this, Lord Vishnu had split the body of Sati into 51 parts with his Sudarshan Chakra, where-where the Sati's limbs part fell, those places became Shaktipeeth. It is believed that the place where this temple stands today, there, the navel and heart of Goddess Sati had fallen.
