The Daksheswar Mahadev Temple is a Shiva temple named for King Daksha Prajapati, who was the father of Sati, while Sati was the first consort of Shiva. Daksheswar Mahadev Temple is one of the many temples in Haridwar and purely from an aesthetic point of view, it’s not all that interesting.

Daksh Mahadev mandir is mythological place where Parvati Mata became Sati and left her life in Sati Kund. One visiting at Haridwar should visit this temple.

This is Sati Mata 's birthplace as well as the place where Sati left her life in Sati kund when her father Daksha insulted her husband Lord Shiva. This place is in Kankhal and Ganga is flowing near sati kinda adjacent to the temple campus. Ganga is not very clean here. But people takes bath due to the mythological importance of this place. Opposite to this temple campus Maa Aanandamoyi's Ashram is there. I have visited that place too for half an hour.
