 Historical Significant of Chintpurni Temple

Behind every historical place, there is a story, like that Chintpurni Temple also has a story. One day, Mata Parvati Devi loves her two supporters very much; they are Dakini and Varini. One day they feel starving, and that time they asked Mata Parvati Devi to feed them. But she said wait I could supply you after some time. Sometimes later, Dakini and Varini again requested to fed them, but Parvati Devi again replied to wait.

That time they told her, Mata, you are the mother of the universe whenever your child feels hungry your responsibility to give them food. Hearing this, Mata Parvati cut her head, and blood spurted from three sides. Dakini and Varini drank from two sides and from the third goddess herself drank. From that time, she knows as a Maa Chinnamastika or Mata Chintpurni.
