Kamakhya devi shrine hosts the yoni of Sati that fell here following the destruction of Daksha’s sacrifice. This Shakti Peetha symbolizes the union of Shiva with Shakti, as described in the Kali Purana. They are depicted in constant union where Kamakhya is the Goddess of desire, who grants salvation. She is the young bride of Lord Shiva and together they symbolize the sublime reality of the miracle of life, the everlasting bliss of male/female union.

The “Matra Yoni” which is inscribed on a rock is covered with silk sarees and is constantly moist by underground spring water.
