Shiva sets up the Shakti Peetha

Lord Shiva assumes the form of Kalbhairav, defeats the asuras and blesses Rishi Dadhichi. The two of them establish a Shakti Peetha in one of the places where Sati’s remains have fallen; that is Kashi. Tarakasur commands the Earth to swallow up the other remains, or ‘pind’ of Shakti.
