Knowing this Lord Shiva removed one bunch of Jhatha from his head and hit it on the earth.
From that Lord Veerabhadra has born and rushed to yaga spot and killed Daksha by cutting his head.
There is also a more famous Kali temple in the heart of the town to which devotees can make a visit en-route from the Shankari Temple.
The town of Kanchi was the capital of the ancient Pallavas.
There is a small Devi Shrine built adjacent the Shiva temple.
Together with Kanchi Kamakshi, Madurai Meenakshi, and Kashi Vishalakshi we have the most potent Shat Sakthi Peethams.
These body parts have fallen at various places in India and Srilanka.
Where ever these parts have fallen the places are called Shaktipeethas.
Later Shiva went to the spot and taken the body of sati from the fire and started dancing with it.
The world was terrorized from this Tandava Nritya and to stop this Nritya, Vishnu used his Sudarshan chakra and completely cut the Sati's body in to pieces.
