There are 51 Shakti Peethas located throughout India, each devoted to a different form of goddess. Kamakhya is a temple in Assam that remains closed during the monsoon for three days when the goddess bleeds. The fourth day that the temple opens is the Ambubachi Mela festival, which celebrates fertility and the Ambubachi myth. Many people talk about reddened underground water during these three days, but there is still no logical or scientific explanation.

3. Jagannath Temple, Odisha

Due to its Rath Yatra, this temple holds tremendous spiritual significance, but this is not the only reason.

Science cannot explain why this is the case.

At low tide, Stambheshwar emerges from the sea – and hundreds of people flock there. The temple still disappears into the sea completely when high tides occur, without leaving behind any trace. It is impossible to guess that a temple exists at the shore of the sea when one is surrounded by the sea.

As opposed to other temples, devotees at Venkateswara temple do not offer flowers, ornaments, jewelry, or Prasad as offerings; instead, they sacrifice human hair to the lord. In the temple’s halls, which remain occupied by barbers, tons of devotees worship the Lord Vishnu every day and sacrifice their human hair. Around 12,000 pilgrims visit here every day, generating six million tonnes of revenue per year for this temple.
