This temple lies in the lap of largest valley of South-Asia, Dang Valley. Lying just at the fifth ward of the largest city of Rapti and Karnali Zone, Ghorahi, it is accessible to many of the pilgrims. The temple also known as ‘Maiko Than’ (Mother’s Place) is situated to the north of Ghorahi one and half kilometers away on bank of Katuwa Khola. This Shaktipeetha is supposed to have emerged due to the falling of right ear of Satidevi according to the Swasthani Purana. This temple is the most popular Shaktipeeth of Dang.
