This temple is one of the Shaktipeeth of Lalita Devi. It is believed that fingers of Sati had fallen here but those parts disappeared from here that is why the goddess is known as Alopi Shankari Devi. The temple is unique in the sense that it doesn’t house any idol. A wooden jhula above a square marbled platform is the main deity, which is worshipped. Coconut & chunari are offered to the deity. Devotees gather here in large numbers during Navratries (Dushehra).
