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's left anklet fell here. Sati is known as Kapalini and Lord Shiva is called Sarvanand. A temple named as Bheemakali is situated at Tamlok in West Bengal.

This temple is very old and large. This place is called as Maa Kapalini Shaktipeeth. Those who visit this place accomplish everything and attain purity.
