Alopi Devi Mandir is a temple situated in Allahabad in state of Uttar Pradesh, India. It is near to the holy Sangam, or confluence, in which the rivers Ganges, Yamuna and the mythical Sarasvati meet. Kumbh Mela is close to to this location. This temple is odd in that there is no statue of any deity on this temple, rather, there may be a wood carriage or 'doli' that is worshipped. The starting place of the name, Alopi Bagh lies in the Hindu perception that once the demise of his spouse Sati, the grieving Lord Shiva travelled through skies together with her lifeless frame.
Lord Vishnu, to relieve him from this anguish, threw his Chakra at the corpse, ensuing in the fall of numerous parts of the body at various locations in India, which were sanctified by means of the touch of the Goddess' body parts and subsequently had been thereby deemed holy locations for pilgrimage. The ultimate component fell at this place thereby named as "Alopi" and the holiest of all.
However, this claim is debatable because there is only one Shakti peeth in Allahabad that's Lalita Devi temple where palms of Sati are supposed to have fallen. Another more credible version is located in oral history traditions narrated through antique inhabitants of the area. It dates lower back to the time while the complete region become protected with the aid of dense forests infested with dreaded dacoits.
