These power places are very important historically to Buddhist and Hindu devotees of Maa Tara
Culturally and historically these Shakti Peeth sites are unique in the world as a places to worship the divine feminine in all her glory.
Legend has it that Sati once fought with her husband Lord Shiva to attend her father's great yagna. Despite his disapproval, she went on to attend the yagna. However, Shiva was not invited and also had to bear the insult by Sati's father, Daksha. Sati couldn't bear this and committed suicide.
When Lord Shiva got to know about it, he was furious. Placing Sati's dead body on his shoulders, he started to perform Tandava - the dance of destruction. Trying to calm him down, Lord Vishnu cut the body with his chakra, parts of which then fell at 108 different places - all of which later came to be known as shakti peethas.
Sati's womb is said to have fallen at Kamakhya temple, hence the significance.
This Shakti Peeth Pilgrimage offers a unique opportunity to engage and enjoy an aspect of Indian Culture that would be otherwise difficult to access.
