Daksha Mahadev Temple

Daksha Mahadev Temple is in the South Knakal town in Uttaranchal Pardesh. It is connected with the legend of King Daksh Prajapati. This temple is an ancient shrine located at Kankhal, and is one of the five sacred places around Haridwar. It is associated with Sati, the spouse of Lord Shiva who immolated herself to preserve his honour on being insulted by her father, King Daksha Prajapati. This incident provoked the disciples of Mahadev and killed King Daksha. Cited from Website: Daksha
