Shrine Of Kanatal

As the temple is associated with Godess Sati( Wife of Lord Shiva and Daughter of Puranic god-king Daksha). Daksha was unhappy with his daughter's choice of husband, and when he performed a grand Vedic sacrifice for all the deities, he did not invite Shiva or Sati. In a rage, Sati threw herself onto the fire, knowing that this would make the sacrifice impure. Because she was the all-powerful mother goddess, Sati left her body in that moment to be reborn as the goddess Parvati. Peoples are worshiping here as a head part of Godess Sati since many long years.
