Good information for a tourist, but there is no information for a devotee or a spiritual tourist. Therefore add some information for this famous shakti peetha, the sthana peeth (the breast shrine) of Adi Shakti.

Secondly, add some information for the famous and india's longest chaitra yatra. Lakhs of people comes from various parts of the globe.

Hope you will add it quickly for the benefit of people.
