Chattal Shaktipeeth Mythology

Chattal Shaktipeeth is one of the 51 Shaktipeeths.  According to the legend, King Daksha, father-in-law of Lord Shiva, had organized a yajna, through which King Daksha didn't ship invites to Lord Shiva and Mother Sati, as a result of  Mother Sati found it very bad. She reached the yagna with out calling.

There was a lot of insult to Lord Shiva at the place of sacrifice, which Mata Sati couldn't bear and she fell into the Havan Kund there. Lord Shankar came to know about this, after which he reached there and took out the physique of Mata Sati from Havan Kund and began doing Tandava, which induced upheaval in all the universe.

To avoid wasting all the universe from this disaster, Lord Vishnu divided the physique of Mata Sati into 51 parts from his Sudarshan Chakra, the limb where it fell became the Shakti Peetha. The "right arm" of Mata Sati fell in the Chattal Shaktipeeth. Here Mata Sati is named ‘Bhavani’ and Lord Shiva as ‘Chandrasekhar’.
