51 Shakti Peeth List with Name, Location & Body Part

Once Sati Mata’s father Daksha Prajapati organized a Yagya where he invited all the gods and goddesses except his daughter and Son-in-law i.e., Mata Sati and Lord Shiva. Mata Sati wanted to attend this Yagna but Mahadev didn’t want to send Mata Sati to the Yagya. But she attended the yagna and there Lord Shiva was insulted publicly by Daksha Prajapati. After listening about his husband Sati Mata ended her life by entering the Yagya Fire.

Lord Shiva destroyed the Yagya and cut the head of Daksha Prajapati. When everyone requested mercy he restored Daksha Prajapati’s life but with the head of a goat. Lord Shiva then picked up Sati Mata’s body and started his Tandav Nritya in the sky.

To save the world from great harm, Lord Vishnu separated Mahadev from Sati Mata’s body. He sent his Sudarshan Chakra which cut Sati Mata’s body into 51 parts. The places where these parts fell came to be Shakti peeths.

Below is the Shakti Pitha list with name, location and body part.
