History : According to the legends, the Daksh Prajapati, the father of Sati had once organized a Yajna. But he doesn't invited Lord Shiva to this Yajna. Sati could not bear the insult to lord Shiva and in retaliation jumped into the fire of the Yajna. Lord Shiva was so shocked that he started roaming in a state of madness with the body of Sati on his back. When Lord Vishnu saw this then he used the Sudarshan Chakra to destroy Sati's body and a part of her skull is believed to have fallen here. It is believed that the skull of Devi Sati, wife to Lord Shiva, had fallen here in the Kunal Pathri temple spot, after Sati`s corpse was cut off into 51 pieces by the Sudarshan Chakra of Lord Vishnu, to cease the dance (Tandava Nritya of Shiva) shouldering the lifeless body of Sati.  Due to this, this place is known as Kunal Pathri.
