- Abode of the Gods. There are more than 2000 temples
and religious places scattered all over the state. Many
of these are quite well-known and attract thousands
of devotees throughout the year.
Devi Yatra - According to legend, Lord
Shiva’s consort Sati once burnt herself alive
in Yagna to avenge an insult to Lord Shiva. The
distraught Shiva picked her corpse and gyrated his
horrified dance. Then Lord Vishnu unleashed his
Chakra and cut the Sati’s body into fifty
one pieces to save the earth from Shiva’s
wrath. All the fifty one places - where parts of
Sati's body fell, became known as Shakti Peeths.
( Jwala Ji ): Jwalaji (flame) or Jwala
Mukhi (flame mouth) is probably the most ancient
temple discussed here besides Vaishno Devi. It is
mentioned in the Mahabharata and other scriptures.
There is a natural cave where eternal flames continue
to burn. Some say there are seven or nine flames
for the seven divine sisters or the nine Durgas.
It is here that Sati's tongue fell which can now
be seen in the form of the flame.
Chintpurni and Chamunda Devi - The
temple dedicated to Mata Chintpurni Devi is located
in a village of the same name in District Una, Himachal
Pradesh. Devotees have been visiting this Shaktipeeth
for centuries to pray at the lotus feet of Mata
Shri Chhinnamastika Devi and Mata Shri Chintpurni
Devi. They bring with them their worldly concerns
and seek blessings from the Devi. It is believed
that if you ask something from the Devi with a true
heart, your wish will be granted.
