There are 51 or Shakti peethas by various accounts,   of which between 4 and 18 are named as Maha major in medieval Hindu texts. Most of these historic places of goddess worship are in India , but there are seven in Bangladesh , three in Pakistan , three in Nepal , and one each in China and Sri Lanka. The legends behind the Shakti Peethas is based on the story of the death of the goddess Sati. Out of grief and sorrow, Shiva carried Sati's body, reminiscing about their moments as a couple, and roamed around the universe with it.

Sati devi was one of them. Daksha gave his daughter Sati in marriage to Lord Shiva. During the conduct of a fire sacrifice, when Daksha entered the arena, every one except Lord Shiva stood up to respect him. So when he conducted a yaga again, he did not invite his daughter Sati and his son in law Lord Shiva. Sati felt sad because of this and went to the Yaga against the wishes of Lord Shiva. She was badly insulted by her father Daksha and jumped in to the sacrificial fire.
Shiva hearing this rushed to the place but could not save Parvathi. He cut off the head of Daksha and took the body of Sati in his hand and started dancing furiously. To bring down his anger, Lord Vishnu cut the body of Sati in to 18 pieces and these pieces fell down in different places of India. These places are called Shakthi Peethas. Some people are of the opinion that there are 51 Shakthi Peethas and yet others of the opinion that there are Shakthi Peethas. This stotra written by Adhi Shankara names the places of Shakthi Peethas and the name of the Goddess in temples there.
