Ambika Bhawani Temple , Aami , Chappra , Bihar
According to Markandeya Purana, this is the place where King Daksha, the son of Lord Brahma and father of Sati had organized a yagya. He did not invite his son-inlaw Lord Shiva and when Sati came to know about it, she rushed to this place of yagya. King Daksha did not behave well with his daughter Sati and insulted Lord Shiva too.After this Ma Sati immolated herself in the yagya kunda. Some ashes of her body remained here and this place came to be referred to as Mahasiddhi Shaktipeetha. When Lord Shiva heard this news, he became furious over Daksha and believed that the king has heartlessly caused harm to his daughter. He grabbed a lock of his tangled mane & dashed it to the land. The vicious Virabhadra & the dreadful Rudrakali rose from the two pieces, while the Bhadrakali, occurred from the rage of Devi herself. Shiva, after hearing his beloved’s death performed the great Tandava.
As per mythology when lord Shiva carried the dead body of "Sati" from the holy yagna kund of Daksh Prajapati, the trunk of Sati's body fell in "Ami" and the holy Shaktipeeth 'Ambika Sthan' was established. This place is famous among Hindus and popularly known as Ami. Shivpuran has the details about the same. This pyre is believed to be still present within the compound of "Ambika Sthan temple" in "Ami".In her next life, Sati incarnated as Parvati and again got married to Shiva.
The Temple is located 4 km from Dighwara , 30 km from Chappra and 50 Km from Patna on NH-19. Dighwara was previously known as Dirgh-dwara and was main gate of King Daksh’s yagna area.
