HARIDWAR
The Gate Way Of Heaven

There is yet another legend that accounts for the burning of Sati at this place. The story goes that once God Maheswar bowed to Sri Rama, the mortal in the presence of Sati. Confounded, Sati questioned the propriety. Maheswar then explained that Rama 'was' the incarnation of Sri Mahavishnu and so he was justified. Frivolously, sati disgusting herself as Sita went to Sri Rama to test him. Identifying as Sati, Sri Rama at once bowed to her. So Sati returned home crest fallen. Lord Maheswar realizing all that went by then, developed dislike for Sat!. It was during that mahayagna performed by his father, she went regardless of the objection raised by Maheswar, hoping for some comfort at least from parents. Alas! her estimation went wrong. She was humiliated before all. When That wounded her heart, she burnt here self. Later, she was born as the daughter of Himavan and married Maheswar. This incident took place here, and there are some evidences of this.

At present there are many temples dedicated to Sati, Maheswar, Hanumanji, besides a Gurudwara and some ashrams, all inviting reverent attention.
