Mithila Shakti Peeth is an important Shakti Peeth where Devi Sati’s left shoulder has fallen. Here Devi Sati is worshipped as Mithila or Mahadevi and Lord Bhairav as Mahodar.
When Sati, the wife of Shiva, sacrificed herself at the Yajna performed by her father Daksha, a very distraught Shiva started dancing with her body. He was dancing the dance of destruction. And the gods said, "Oh, we are doomed! Shiva is dancing the dance of destruction. Vishnu took his bow and cut the body of Sati into fifty-one pieces with his arrows. And wherever a piece of the Divine Mothers body fell on earth, that place became a Shakti Peetha.
Janakpuri/ Mithila is famously known for the birth of goddess Sita as per Hindu epic story Ramayana. We find huge temple structure which looks like a fort with four towers and a colour fountain in front of the temple entrance which looks magnificent during a night when light falls on it. You also find the huge door which is 30 meter in height almost similar to Taj Mahal. Temple premises is surrounded by greenery and looks magnificent when seen from the distance.
