He had 27 daughters and Sati devi is one among them. Sati devi got married to Lord Shiva. When Dashka entered the arena of a yaga performed by Agni, every one except Lord Shiva stood up as a mark of respect. Daksha felt insulted by Lord Shiva's behaviour. Later when Daksha conducted a yaga him self , he did not invite his daughter and his son in law.As there was no invitation from her Sati felt bad. Even then she wanted to attend the yaga against the wish of Lord Shiva.When Sati, attended the yaga no body has cared for her and she felt insulted by the actions of her sisters and parents. Then when her father started abusing her husband she could not control her feelings and sacrified herself at the place of yagna by creating agni from earth with her right thumb of her foot. Knowing this Lord Shiva got angry and removed one bunch of Jhatha from his head and hit it on the earth. From that Lord Veerabhadra has born and rushed to yaga spot as dircted by Lord Siva and killed Daksha by cutting his head. (later Daksha was given life by fixing a goat head) Later Shiva went to the spot and taken the body of sati from the fire and started dancing with it. The world was terrorized from this Tandava Nritya and requested Lord Vishnu to stop this Nritya. Knowingly well that Siva would not stop the Nritya unless the body of Sati is removed from his hands, Vishnu used his Sudarshan chakra and completely cut the Sati's body in to pieces. These body parts have fallen at various places in India and Srilanka and Where ever these parts have fallen the places are called Shaktipeethas. There are 18 such places and they are called Ashta ( 8) Dasa (10 ) Shaktipeethas. The list of body parts fallen at these 18 places are given below. If you observe them carefully some of the parts are not found in that list and people say that the remaining parts have fallen at other places and as such the shakti peethas are 51 or 108But this blog is designed based on the above shloka of Adi shankaracharya  and confined to 18 peethas onlyThe order given below is as per the above shloka. Shankari Devi,Trimkomali  1) Lankayam Shankari Devi: The temple of Shankari Devi supposed to be in Sri Lanka at Trimkomali. At present there is notemple availble at this place and it is said the temple was destroyed by Portugese people between 16th to 17th century. My friend who was in air force and posted in Sri Lanka has confirmed the same. As the temple is not there Shankari Devi drawn by an artist is given. Body part : Devi's Groin has fallen here.   Goddess Kanchi KamakshiKamakshi Temple, Kanchi
