Where there is the mention of a temple, a very interesting Hindu mythological tale won’t be behind. There is a trident, or a ‘Trishul’, 6 meters tall, 90 cm is diameter, made from a combination of iron and copper, is said to have been thrown by the female deity Durga, also known as Shakti, to kill demons.

The myth states that you can try to move the trident with your entire body weight. Try to then push it with a finger, and it will move. We can’t tell you if that stands true or not, but if not for this, then for the magnificence of the temple, and the sheer number of devotees and to unravel the myth behind this whole story, is exactly why you should visit the Shakti Temple.
