Goddess Shakti emerged, separating from Shiva and helped Brahma in the creation of the universe. Brahma decided to give Shakti back to Shiva. Therefore, his son Daksha performed several yagnas to obtain Shakti as his daughter in the form of Sati. It was then decided that Sati was brought into this world with the motive of marrying Shiva. However, Sati got attracted to Shiva and finally one day Shiva and Sati were married.
Daksha performed a yagna with a desire to take revenge on Lord Shiva. Daksha invited all the deities to the yajna except Lord Shiva and Sati. The fact that she was not invited did not deter Sati from attending the yagna.
She expressed her desire to attend the yagna to Shiva, who tried his best to dissuade her from going. Shiva eventually relented and Sati went to the yagna. Sati , being an uninvited guest, was not given any respect at the yagna.
Furthermore, Daksha insulted Shiva. Gods prayed to lord Vishnu. He came there and started fighting him. The various parts of the body fell at several spots all through the Indian subcontinent and formed sites which are known as Shakti Peethas today. This is because it is the place where Devi chose to reside after her birth in Dwapar Yuga. The Vasudeva replaced his son Krishna with this girl child of Yashoda. When Kamsa tried to kill the girl she slipped from his hands and assumed the form of Mahadevi Adishakti.
Thereafter Devi chose Vindhya Mountains as her abode to live on the earth. It led to the development of the concept of Shakti Peethas and thereby strengthened Shaktism. Enormous numbers of stories in the Puranas and other Hindu religious books took the Daksha yagna as the reason for their origin.
It is an important incident in Shaivism , resulting in the emergence of Parvati in the place of Sati Devi and making Shiva a grihastashrami house holder , leading to the origin of Ganesha and Kartikeya. These are places that are believed to have been blessed with the presence of Shakti due to the falling of body parts of the corpse of Sati Devi, when Lord Shiva carried it and wandered throughout Aryavartha in sorrow.
There are 51 Shakti Peeth linking to the 51 alphabets in Sanskrit. In the listings below: "Shakthi" refers to the Goddess worshiped at each location, all being manifestations of Dakshayani Sati , Parvati or Durga; "Body Part or Ornament" refers to the body part or piece of jewelry that fell to earth, at the location on which the respective temple is built.
Kamakshi Vilasam Slokam
Get to know how it came into being, the verses lyrics and their meaning. He had a drum which he used to set the beat and composed verses extempore, which is called the Shiva Tandava Stotram. Shiva was so pleased and enamoured listening to this music. As he sang, slowly, Ravana started climbing Kailash from its Southern Face. When Ravana was almost on top, and with Shiva still engrossed in this music, Parvati saw this man climbing up. There is space only for two people on top!
However, in the Hindu pantheon, the "names" of the deities are more descriptions than names. Tripura Sundari, like many of the forms of the supreme, has names assigned to her and these can be found in the Lalita sahasranama text. One of the names in this text is "Kamakshi" which means "She whose eyes awaken desire, or She who has beautiful eyes". Thus Kamakshi is Parvati and it is enough if she merely glances at her devotees, not even lifting her hand in benediction, the devotee is sure to receive all that he prays for. Boarding and Lodging for the pilgrims are provided by the temple authorities.
