The Maa Ambika Shaktipeeth is located in Rajasthan, near Bharatpur. The temple is located in Bairat village, Virat Nagar about 90 km from Jaipur.
The chief legend of Ambika relates to the creation of the Shakti Peethas. Sati, the daughter of Prajapati Daksha, was married to the god Shiva versus his wishes. Daksha arranged a great yajna but did not invite Sati and Shiva. Uninvited, Sati reached the Yajna site, where Daksha ignored Sati as well as Shiva.
Sati was not able to withstand this insult. So, Devi Sati gave her life by jumping into the fire of Havan organized by her father King Daksh. When Lord Shiva was running around the planet carrying her body Lord Vishnu divided the body into 51 parts utilizing his Sudarshan chakra. Out of those 51 parts, from which the ‘Left Leg’ of Sati fell to this place. The idol of maa Sati is called ‘Ambika’ and the lord Shiva is worshipped as ‘Amriteshwar’.
