The place, where Goddess Sati’s two manivedikas – wrists fell, is known as Manivedika Temple and the Icon, installed later in the temple is called Gayatri Devi. There are two idols here, one is of Devi Sati and called as Gayatri. The other idol in the temple is of Lord Shiva Known as the Sarvananda (the one who makes everyone happy).
