When Sati, the wife of Shiva, sacrificed herself at the Yajna performed by her father Daksha, a very distraught Shiva started dancing with her body. He was dancing the dance of destruction. And the gods said, "Oh, we are doomed! Shiva is dancing the dance of destruction. 

Vishnu took his bow and cut the body of Sati into fifty-one pieces with his arrows. And wherever a piece of the Divine Mothers body fell on earth, that place became a Shakti Peetha.

Sati Devi Left Feet Fingers is felled here . So Ambika Devi temple is Shakthi Peethas.Here Devi is worshipped as Ambika (the goddess of power) and Lord Shiva asAmriteshwar(nectar of immortality).
