Jansthan Shakti Peeth, Nashik, Maharashtra, India: The Shaktism

Jansthan Shakti Peeth

Jansthan Shakti Peeth is considered one of the 51 Shakti Peeths famous in Hinduism. This Shakti Peeth is situated at a place called Panchavati, about 8 km from Nashik Road Station in the Nashik district of Maharashtra State.

According to the Puranas in Hinduism, wherever the body parts or ornaments of the goddess Sati fell, there they became Shakti Peeth. These Shakti Peeths are called very holy shrines, that are spread all over the Indian subcontinent. These Shakti Peeths are very important from a religious point of view. The Devipuran describes 51 Shakti Peeths.

Significance of Jansthan Shakti Peeth

The "chin" of Mom Sati fell in Jansthan Shakti Peeth. Right here Mata Sati is called ‘Bhramari’ and Lord Shiva as ‘Vikritaksha’.

This famous Shakti Peeth is on the Mumbai-Delhi main rail route of Central Railway in Maharashtra, about 8 km from Nashik Road Station. Shakti Peeth is the Bhadrakali temple located at a spot called Panchvati, the place the 'Chibuk' part of Sati fell. The Shakti here is 'Bhramari' and Shiva is 'Vikritaksha' - 'Chibuke Bhramari Devi Vikritaksha Janasthale.' So here Chibuk appeared in the form of Shakti. This temple does not have a shikhara, on the throne are the idols of the neo-Durga, among whom there is a high idol of Bhadrakali.

Naming

Naming the 'Nashik' of this place, there are 9 small hills behind it, due to which it got its name - 'Nav Shiva', which was changed from 'Shani' to 'Nashik'. On all these 9 hills is the place of Goddess Durga, in which there is a pre-traditional self-styled idol of Bhadrakali.

The establishment

The idol was not insulted under the rule of Islam, so the idol was installed on the hill outside the village, and in 1790 Sardar Ganpat Rao Patwardhan Dixit built this present temple. It was called 'Math of the Goddess' and two storeys have been built above the temple. The Kalash was not installed on the temple due to the fear of the destruction of the Yavanas. This does not have a peak on it. The extremely attractive statue of Maa Bhadrakali, made of punch metal, is about 38 centimeters (15 inches) high and has a variety of armaments in its 18 arms.

Jansthan Shakti Peeth Mythology

Jansthan Shakti Peeth is one of the 51 Shakti peeths. According to religious texts, parts of Goddess Sati fell at all these places. According to the legend, a yajna was organized by King Daksha, father-in-law of Lord Shiva, during which King Daksha didn't send invitations to Lord Shiva and Mother Sati as a result of King Daksha didn't consider Lord Shiva as his equal. There was a variety of insult to Lord Shiva on the place of sacrifice, which Mata Sati could not bear and she fell into the Havan Kund there.

Lord Shankar came to find out about this, after which he reached there and took out the body of Mata Sati from Havan Kund and began doing Tandava, which caused upheaval in the entire universe. To save the entire universe from this crisis, Lord Vishnu divided the body of Mata Sati into 51 parts from his Sudarshan Chakra, the limb where it fell became the Shakti peeth.
