The sanctuary is situated on top of the Naina slope at the northern shore of Naini lake in Nainital, UttraKhand. The directing god of the sanctuary is Maa Naina Devi spoke to by two Netras or eyes. Nainital is one of the 64 Shaktipeeths otherwise called religious destinations of Hinduism.
In the old days of history when Sati, the spouse of Lord Shiva, not able to hold up under the affront when her dad King Daksha declined to welcome Sati and Lord Shiva for a yajna, smoldered herself to death. Crushed and misery stricken, when Lord Shiva was coming back to their dwelling place her body in His arms, Her body parts fell on different places on earth. The sanctuary of Naina Devi is based on the spot where the eyes (naina) of the Goddess are accepted to have fallen, when Lord Shiva conveyed her body.
