Temple History :

According to legend, Lord Shivas consort Sati once burnt herself alive in Yagna to avenge an insult to Lord Shiva. The distraught Shiva picked her corpse and gyrated his horrified dance.

Then Lord Vishnu unleashed his Chakra and cut the Satis body into fifty one pieces to save the earth from Shivas wrath.

All the fifty one places – where parts of Sati's body fell, became known as Shakti Peeths.

It is believed that Satis eyes fell at the place where this temple is situated. Therefore, this temple is called Naina Devi.

The word Naina is synonymous with Satis eyes.

Since then, devotees started visiting this temple.
