The is a special place being one of the few temples in the world dedicated to Harsiddhi Devi. The original ancient temple in the remote town of Porbandar, Gujrat and nearby larger temple in Miyani, Gujrat, India, known as Hashal Amba "Happy Mother" in Gurjat  Enchanted and devoted King Vikramaditya, who established her temple in Ujjain, Madya Pradesh, india.   

Harsiddhi Devi is one of the famous 51 shakti peeth temples that formed after the goddess sati's body fell to earth in 51 pieces.  Sati was the daughter of King Daksh, the king of the world and of mankind in ancient times.  Daksha started hating Lord Shiva and decided not to let Lord Shiva and Sati get married. However, Sati's devotion was so strong for Shiva, after much penance they finally got married. This marriage only increased Daksha's hatred towards Lord Shiva.  Daksha performed a yagna with a desire to take revenge on Lord Shiva near munimandala presently Muramalla andhra pradesh.

 

Daksha invited all the deities to the yajna except Lord Shiva and Sati. The fact that she was not invited did not deter Sati from attending the yagna. She expressed her desire to attend the yagna to Shiva, who tried his best to dissuade her from going. Shiva eventually relented and Sati went to the yagna. Sati, being an uninvited guest, was not given any respect at the yagna. Furthermore, Daksha insulted Shiva. Sati was unable to bear her father's insults toward her husband, so she immolated herself.Enraged at the insult and the injury, Shiva in Virabhadra avatar destroyed Daksha's yagna, cut off Daksha's head, and later replaced it with that of a male goat as he restored him to life.Virabhadra didn't stop fighting he kept raging with anger gods prayed lord vishnu.he came there and started fighting him. Still immersed in grief, Shiva picked up the remains of Sati's body, and performed the Tandava, the celestial dance of destruction, across all creation. The other Gods requested Vishnu to intervene to stop this destruction, towards which Vishnu used the Sudarshana Chakra, which cut through the Sati's corpse. The various parts of the body fell at several spots all through the Indian subcontinent and formed sites which are known as Shakti Peethas today.
