One of the Shakti Peeth

This is known as Badi Patan Devi Temple, Chhoti Patan Devi is situated near Patna Sahib Gurudwara. It is said that when Mata Sati committed suicide after his father Daksha disrespected her husband Lord Shiva. Lord was very angry on Sati's death and took her on his lap and Lord Vishnu cut the Sati's body from his chakra and body parts fell down at various places. Wherever the body parts were fallen the Shakti Peeth is built there- hence this temple is said to have the right thigh of Mata Sati.

Crowded temple

Crowded temple - it is one of the 51 Shakti peethas. Like all Hindu temples there is jostling, prayers and associated noise. For the crowd it attracts it is reasonably clean. There is certainly no demand for money atleast from us.

A nice, religious visit

I, along with one of my friends visited Patan Devi Mandir. You can get to the mandir either by Gaayghaat Golamber or by Gulzarbagh Station, as the temple lies in between.We also visited the Janamsthali Mandir (the original mandir). It is in the nearby lane. I got to know that the Janamsthali Temple is original one and the Patan Devi is a new build.
