  • Did you know: Ramgiri Shaktipeeth is believed to be at two places- 'Sharda Devi temple' which is located in Maihar and second, 'Sharda Devi temple' which is located in Chitrakoot.

Ramgiri Shakti Peeth is a religious place for Hindus. Ramgiri Shakti Peeth is the place where mother Sati's right breast was dropped. There is a difference in the right place of Ramgiri Shakti Peeth. Some people consider the Sharda Devi temple as Shakti Peeth, which is situated in Maihar of Madhya Pradesh and some consider the Sharda Temple as a Shakti Peeth, which is located in Chitrakoot of Madhya Pradesh. Both of these temples are located in Madhya Pradesh. But the right place is not known yet.

Sharda Devi temple is located in the city of Maihar in Satna district of Madhya Pradesh. The Sharda Devi Temple on the Trikuta hill with an elevation of about 600 feet in the city of Maihar, whose goddess is a Maa Sharadey Devi. This temple is also known as 'Mihar Devi Mata'.

It is believed that this temple is one of the 51 Shakti Peaks of Mata and at this place the mother Sati's right breast was dropped. Here power is worshiped as 'Shivani' and Bhairav (which is a form of Lord Shiva) is worshiped as 'Chand'. According to the Puranas, wherever the pieces of the body of Sati, the clothes or ornaments held, have fallen, wherever Shaktipeeth came into being. They are called the most sacred shrines. These shrines are spread across the entire Indian subcontinent.

According to mythology, Goddess Sati gave her life by jumping into the fire of Havan organised by her father King Daksheshwara. When Lord Shiva was running around the earth carrying her body then Lord Vishnu divided the body in 51 parts using his Sudarshan chakra. Out of those 51 parts, from which the ‘Right Breast’ of Sati fell to this place.
