The Kangala (skeleton) of Goddess Sathi fell here.
The city of Kanchipuram is dotted with many temples; the most famous being the majestic Kanchi Kamakshi Amman temple. Many wrongly consider this temple as the Shakthi Peeth.
But, the Shakthipeeth is adjacent to Kumarakottam, which, in turn, is in close proximity to Kamakshi temple. This shrine is much older in existence than the Kamakshi temple.
