The chief legend of Chandika Sthan relates to the creation of the Shakti Peethas. Sati, the daughter of Prajapati Daksha, was married to the god Shiva versus his wishes. Daksha arranged a great yajna but did not invite Sati and also Shiva. Uninvited, Sati reached the yajna-site, where Daksha ignored Sati as well as Shiva
Sati was not able to withstand this insult. So, Devi Sati gave her life by jumping into the fire of Havan organized by her father King Daksh. When Lord Shiva was running around the planet carrying her body that Lord Vishnu divided the body into 64 parts utilizing his Sudarshan chakra. Out of those 64 parts, from which the ‘Left Eye’ of Sati fell to this place.
Being a Shakti Peetha Sthan, the temple is incredibly religious. It is among the sixty-four Shakti Peethas existing in India. It is a spiritual center of Shaktism. Regional people over here have faith that the place can mystically treat all eye disorders. A lot of people in Bihar crowd the temple to get the blissful true blessings of Mother Shakti.
