Default NAINA DEVI Temple Himachal Pradesh

Naina Devi is one of the most famous Hindu Temple in Himachal Pradesh. It is one of the Shakti Peeths of India. The temple of Naina Devi is in the district of Bilaspur in Himachal Pradesh.

According to the Hindu legend, Sati burnt herself alive to avenge an insult to her husband, Lord Shiva. But Shiva furious with rage and grief, picked up the body of Sati and started his gyrating dance known as the Tandava dance in the Puranas. To stop the horrifying dance by Lord Shiva and to save the universe from his wrath, Lord Vishnu decided to stop him. Lord Vishnu, with the help of his Chakra, cut the corpse of Sati into fifty one pieces. Thus wherever the pieces of Sati's body fell is known as a Peeth. There are fifty one Peeths on earth. And these Peeths are considered to be very sacred and worth visiting for the Hindu pilgrims.

It is believed, according to the myths, that Sati's eye fell at the very place where the Naina Devi in Himachal Pradesh is built. The word Naina is associated with the eye of the Sati.The Govind Sagar Lake and Bharka Dam is situated near this temple.
