Shondesh Shakti Peeth, Amarkantak

Shondesh Shakti Peeth is among the 51 Shakti Peeth of Maa Sati and is situated in Amarkantak, Madhya Pradesh. It is said that, the Right Buttock of maa Sati fell here, when lord Vishnu in order to relieve lord Shiva from the grief of losing his wife Sati, used his ‘Sudarshan Chakra’ to incise maa Sati’s Body. Here the idol of maa Sati is called as ‘Narmada’ and lord Shiva is worshipped as ‘Bhadrasen’. This is also the point of origin of the river Naramada and the temple complex also includes the Narmada Udgam temple.
