According to legend, Lord Shiva's consort Sati once burnt herself alive in Yagna to avenge an insult to Lord Shiva. The distraught Shiva picked her corpse and gyrated his horrified dance.

 

Then Lord Vishnu unleashed his Chakra and cut the Sati's body into fifty one pieces to save theearth from Shiva's wrath.All the fifty one places -where parts of Sati's body fell, became known as Shakti PeethsIt is believed that Sati's eyes fell at the place where this temple is situated. Therefore, this temple is called Naina Devi.The word Naina is synonymous with Sati's eyes.Since then, devotees started visiting this temple.
