Nalhati Shakti peeth Mythology

Nalhati 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 whole universe from this disaster, Lord Vishnu divided the body of Mata Sati into 51 parts from his Sudarshan Chakra, the limb where it fell became the Shakti Peetha.

In the Nalhati Shaktipeeth, the "Udarnali" (throat pipe) of Mother Sati fell. Here Mata Sati is called ‘Kalika’ (Durga) and Lord Shiva as ‘Yogish’.
