Short Life History of Rani Sati
Many people believe that Rani Sati was actually an incarnation of Devi Durga. However, some others are of the opinion that in her previous birth she was actually born as Uttara, the daughter of King Birata of Mahabharata fame. Her husband Abhimanyu was the son of Arjuna and nephew of Shri Krishna. As we all known, Abhimanyu died in the great war of Kurukshetra in a very unjust way at a very tender age.

Grieved by the death of her husband, Uttara wanted to immolate herself on her husband pyre. However, Shri Krishna persuaded her not to as she was carrying the only heir to the throne of Hastinapur. Uttara then wished that she would be married to Abhimanyu in her next life and also that she would be able to become ‘sati’ by immolating herself on his pyre. Shri Krishna agreed to that.

As granted by Lord Shri Krishna, Uttara was born as Narayani in a place called Dowka in Rajastan. Her father’s name was Gursamal. As she grew up she was married off to a lad called Tandhan, who in hs previous birth was Abhimanyu, son of Arjuna. Both Tandhan and Narayani led a happy peaceful life in the former’s native place, Hissar. However, fate willed otherwise. Tandhan had a beautiful white horse; the prince of Hissar wanted Tandhan to handover the horse to him. However, Tandhan refused to oblige and so the prince decided to use force. However, in the ensuing fight the prince was killed. Enraged, the king came to the battle ground and killed Tandhan. Narayani, who was the epitome of power, then killed the king. She then asked her servant Ranaji to set up the pyre and she committed sati on the pyre of her departed husband.
However, there are other variations of the story. According to some others, Tandhan was killed at the hand of dacoits. Yet others, proclaims that he was killed by Muslim invaders. However, to the devotees, it does not really matter. They lovingly call her Dadisah and that is why this temple at Jhunjhunu is also called Dadi Sah Rani Sati Temple.
