TEMPLES IN KAMRUP DISTRICT

The Sadhanamala, another Buddhist text, substitutes Srihatta (Sylhet) for Jalandhara or Jalasaila. The Kahka Purana in another chapter, however, refers to seven pithas. namely,

(1) Devikuta, where Sati’s two feet fell and where the Devi is Maha bhaga;

(2) Uddiyana, where the two thighs fell and where the Devi is Katyayini;

(3) Kamagiri in Kamarupa, where, the pudendum muliebre fell and the Devi is Kamakhya;

(4) a locality in the eastern border of Kamarupa where the naval fell and where the Devi is Dikkaravasini;

(5) Jalandhara, where the two breasts fell and where the Devi is Candi;

(6) Purnagiri, where the neck and the shoulders fell and where the Devi is Purnesvari; and

(7) a place on the borders of Kamarupa where the head fell and where the Devi is Lalitakanta.
