Religious Significance

According to myth, Parvathi as Sati, the “virtuous wife,” killed herself when her father insulted Shiva. Her corpse, borne on his shoulders, was cut up by Vishnu to end Shiva’s dangerously violent grief. The parts of Parvati’s body then fell to Earth at the Shakti peetha sites. The left eye of the Sati fell at Munger, which subsequently developed into a place of worship of the Divine Mother Chandi. 

Another legend connected with Chandika Sthan is regarding King Karna of the ancient Indian kingdom of Anga, who used to worship goddess Chandi Mata every day and in turn the Goddess gave him 114 pounds (equivalent to 50 kilograms) of gold for distribution among the needy and downtrodden at Karanchaura, now a local name for the vicinity.

Chandika Sthan’s development was done years back by Rai Bahadur Kedar Nath Goinka, again in the year 1991 Shyam Sunder Bhangad had done. Still the development work is going on in the mandir, during both the navrata’s Paramhans Swami Niranjana Nath Saraswati does the Satsang and Bhajan.
