History:-Maa Uma Devi Shakthi Peethas is located at Janakpur in Nepal . This Temple is dedicated to Maa Durga and is one among 51 Shakthi Peethas.
When Sati, the wife of Shiva, sacrificed herself at the Yajna performed by her father Daksha, a very distraught Shiva started dancing with her body. He was dancing the dance of destruction. And the gods said, “Oh, we are doomed! Shiva is dancing the dance of destruction.
Vishnu took his bow and cut the body of Sati into fifty-one pieces with his arrows. And wherever a piece of the Divine Mothers body fell on earth, that place became a Shakti Peetha.
Mithila Shakti Peeth or Maa Uma Devi Shakthi Peethas is an important shakthi peeth where Devi Sati’s left shoulder (Vama Skandha) has fallen. Here Devi Sati is worshipped as Uma devior Mahadevi and Lord Bhairav as Mahodar.
