CHINTPURNI DEVI TEMPLE

He came back to the particular spot from his father-in-law's place and went on praying to Durga. The girl appeared this time in human form and told him the whereabouts where he would find her in the form of a pindi (a round stone-ball). He should install the Pindi in a temple. The Devi blessed him that he would have no fright, as it was a Devasthan (site of Gods) though so deserted. She disappeared and Mai Das discovered the Pindi and installed it in a temple.

It is believed that the place is where the toes of gati goddess had fallen being cut off by the Chakra of Vishnu Lord when he was cutting away the pieces of Sati's dead body carried by Lord Siva in his Tandava Nritya. The Pindi represents Sati's feet and is a manifestation of her. Chintpurni Devi is believed to fulfill the desires of a person who comes there and devotedly worships her.

The temple is very popular and attracts thousands of pilgrims every year. The jungle has almost disappeared. The Mantram repeated in the Pujah is said to have been revealed by the Devi herself when she appeared in human form.
