History:-Jayadurga Temple at Baidyanath is the place where Sati’s Heart had fallen. Here Sati is worshipped as Jai Durga and Lord Bhairav as Vaidyanath or Baidyanath. The Shakthi Peeth is popularly known as Baidyanath Dham or Baba Dham. Since the heart of Sati fell here, the place is also called as Hardapeetha. Lord Bhairav as Vaidyanath is worshipped as one of the important twelve Jyotirlingas.
Within the campus, Jayadurga Shaktipeeth is present exactly opposite to the main temple of Vaidyanath. Both the temples are connected by red colored silk threads in their tops. There is a belief that the couple who binds these two tops with the silk will have a happy family life by the blessings of Lord Shiva and Parvathi.
Baidyanath Jayadurga Shakti Peeth is located in Deoghar, Jharkhand. This Shakti Peeth has its significance as a Hindu pilgrimage. The mythology behind this Shakti Peeth is that the heart of Mata Sati has fallen here, and for this reason, it is also known as HridayPeeth.
