Karatoya Ghat Shaktipeeth Mythology

Kartoyaghat Shaktipeeth is included in 51 Shaktipeeths. Based on the ancient legend King Daksha, the father-in-law of Shiva God performed the yajna, in which he did not send invitations to Shiva God.

Mata Sati didn't find this right. She went to join the yagna without being called. Shiva was insulted at the sacrificial place, which Mata Sati couldn't bear, and there she jumped into the Havan Kund.

When Lord Shiva got here to know about this, he reached there and took out the body of Mata Sati from Havan Kund and started doing Tandava, which caused an uproar in the whole universe.

This Shaktipeeth falls under the elaborate Shakti Triangle on the banks of the Kartoya River at the confluence site of Bangladesh and Kamarupa and is also called the Siddha Kshetra.
