Daksha Prajpati Mandir

Kankhal


Haridwar is one of the most ancient cities in the world. Its original name was Mayapuri and it is mentioned in all our ancient Vedas and Puranas. The small town of Kankhal is very close to Haridwar and it has a beautiful temple to Shiva which is known as the Daksha Prajapati Mandir. The temple itself is not that old but the yajnashala or place where yajnas (fire sacrifices) are conducted is very old and it has been confirmed as the place in which the original Sati gave up her life for the sake of her husband who had been insulted by her father. Kankhal is the place where Sati's father who was one of the patriarchs of the ancient world had his capital and performed a famous yajna or sacrifice many hundreds of years ago. This yajna was obviously a very important one since it is mentioned in all our Puranas.

the idol they have made of Shiva holding a dead sati says it all...its heart breaking,and yet sends a shiver down your spine!

I have been to that temple where Sati gave up her life and the Sati Kund, but now I wish I could go there and see it once more
