  • Goddess Sati's Father Daksh and this kankhal is place where they live... and this Temple on the name of Daksh so Daksheswar Temple.
  • It is very beautiful place in kankhal Haridwar where people become happy to reach here. This is the place where maa Sati seat in Hawankund and Lord Shiva bring out from here and weeping where the bubbles of weeping fall there a rudraksh tree built naturally. Here maa Ganga came and maa parvati touch their feet and bath in Ganga river everyday. So from bath in this place the people free from Moksh.
  • According to Indian mythology, Shiva is the truth, and Shiva is the god of death, but do not see it in terms of destruction will not end as long as long as it is impossible to build, but there is only one God, our Hindu they have different names and methods of worship.
