Naina Devi Temple

Naina Devi Temple is one of the fifty-one Shakti Peeths in India. Situated 60 km from Bilaspur district in Himachal Pradesh, Naina Devi Temple is one of the highly venerated Shakti Temples in India. According to Hindu mythology, sati, consort of Lord Shiva, killed herself by jumping in the sacrificial fire when her father Daksha Prajapati insulted her husband. This enraged lord Shiva who started roaming the entire universe with the body of Sati in his arms.

Lord Vishnu dismembered the dead body of Sati to calm down the anger of Shiva. Various body parts of Sati fell at fifty-one different places in India that later became sacred as Shakti Peeths. It is believed that eyes of Sati fell here and later a Temple was built at this very place. The Naina Devi Temple is situated over a small yet picturesque hill.
