Daksha Mahadev Temple (Haridwar)
The ancient temple of Daksha Mahadev stands in the south Kankhal town. Mythology has it that King Daksha Prajapati, father of Sati (Lord Shiva's first wife) performed yagya at this place, but didn't invite Lord Shiva (Mahadev).
Feeling insulted, Sati burnt herself in the yagya kund. Provoked by this, the ganas (followers) of Lord Shiva killed King Daksha. Later, Lord Shiva brought him back to life.
But Sati came and was insulted by her father. She could not take the insult and burnt herself in the yagya kund. On knowing this Shiva's followers killed Daksha. But later Mahadeo (Shiva) brought Daksha to life.
The Daksha temple is a mark to this fable. This place is one of the five holy places in Haridwar.
