Where are Shakti Peethas located?



Shakti Peethas are the places where parts of goddess Sati fell on earth. There are total 51 Shakti Peethas out of which 4 are called as Adi Shakti Peethas. We find all Shakti Peethas are accompanied with lord Bhairava who is one of the manifestations of lord Shiva. Below are the list of known Shakti Peethas and their locations. I tried my best in gathering information from google searches, and other source of information, if I am wrong here and there I apologies to all readers.

In  Hindu mythology maa Shakti is worshiped by all women to attain longevity for their husband and lead life with all kinds of happiness. Although it is the same body parts of goddess Sati, each Shakti peeth is worshiped with different names but all belongs to goddess Parvathi.
