History to this place dates back in the time when it is said that the thumb of her left leg of Maa Sati fell to this place, when lord Vishnu in order to relieve lord Shiva from grief of losing his wife Sati, used his ‘Sudarshan Chakra’ to incise maa Sati Body. Then, at the place of fall of thumb of her left leg, this temple was constructed.
There is a famous story behind this Shakti Peeth. It is said that once a very cruel demon called as Arunasura used to live in the world. His power grew so much that he started fighting devas in heaven and forced to leave the heaven. He did not even spared the families of the devas.
