Ratnavali Shaktipeeth Mythology

Ratnavali Shaktipeeth is one of the 51 Shaktipeeths. According to spiritual 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, in which King Daksha did not send invitations to Lord Shiva and Mother Sati, because King Daksha did not consider Lord Shiva as his equal.

Mother Sati found it very bad. She reached the yagna without calling. There was a lot of insult to Lord Shiva at the place of sacrifice, which Mata Sati could not tolerate, and she fell into the Havan Kund there.

Lord Shankar came to know about this, after which he reached there and took out the body of Mata Sati from Havan Kund and started 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 Peetha.

The "right wing" (shoulder) of Mata Sati fell in Ratnavali Shaktipeeth. Here Mata Sati is known as 'Kumari' and Lord Shiva as 'Shiva'.
