According to the legends, Daksha performed a yagna with a desire of taking revenge on Lord Shiva because he had married the former’s daughter going against his will. He invited all deities for the yagna except for Shiva and Sati. Sati wanted to attend the yagna and eventually convinced Shiva to let her do so. Shiva allowed her to go with his followers. Since Sati was an uninvited guest, she wasn’t given respect. Furthermore, Daksha insulted Shiva. Sati couldn’t tolerate her father insult her husband and she commits suicide by jumping into the yajna. Due to the loss and insult, Shiva got enraged and beheaded Daksha. He replaced the head with a goat’s head and gave him life. Not just that, he picked up Sati’s body and danced the dance of Destruction- Tandav all around. Many Gods intervened to stop him but he wouldn’t listen to anyone. Shiva’s disc, the Sudarshan Chakra cut through the corpse of Sati and the various parts of her body fell at several parts of the continent which formed the sites that are known as Shakti Peethas today. The part where the Nabhi or Naval fell, has the Purnagiri temple. People come here to worship the devi. The temple is open from 6 AM to 12 PM and from 4 PM to 8 PM.
