 History of  Katyayani Shakti Pith Temple 

The Shiv Puran mentions that "Dakshprajapati" father of Goddess Sati, (consort of Lord Shiva), organized a big Yagna in which he did not invite Lord Shiva. When Sati learned that Lord Shiva was insulted she jumped into the fire. This enraged Lord Shiva who took the burning body of Sati on his shoulders and performed the Tandav dance (dance of destruction). According to the legend when Lord Vishnu saw mass destruction all around he tried to normalize Lord Shiva and cut the burning body of Sati into pieces with his Chakra (Mace). It is said that the various spots where parts of Devi Sati fell became Shakti Peeth Sthans. There are supposed to be 108 such Sthans , out of which only 51 are known today. It is stated that the hair of Goddess Sati fell in Brij and the spot is known as Katyayani Peeth.
