Siva marries Sati
With the instructions from BrahmaDev, Daksha decided to marry his daughter with Siva. BrahmaDev went to Kailas and told Siva about the marriage. Siva was perfectly happy with the marriage.
At that time, Vishnu arrived there with Devi Laxmi. After some time, Kailas was filled with the arrival of Devas who came to hear the happy news. When the auspicious time came, Siva went out to Daksha's palace.
With BrahmaDev, Vishnu and other Devas on his side, Siva arrived at Daksha's palace. Daksha was waiting at the front palace door to welcome Lord Siva. Daksha was extremely happy to see Siva coming with all Devas. Daksha arranged all the practices required to the marriage, given charity to Brahmins, arranged food for every visitors and welcomed everyone to the wedding.
Lord Siva became very pleasant. He said to BrahmaDev,"Acharya! I am very happy that you have arranged all the wedding ceremonies perfectly. Please ask for anything in return from me. I will give anything you wish. Please ask..."
BrahmaDev replied gladly,"Lord Mahadev! I am very much glad that you found my work as an asset. If I deserve to seek a wish, then here is my wish......Your presence should always be here. I wish to establish a temple and pray you. People from all over the word will come to this temple and as soon as they pray you, you should bless them and burn all their sins away. This is all I want. Bless me by granting this wish."
"Your wish is granted. Everything you wished for will happen immediately.",Siva blessed. After some time, Siva went to Kailas with Sati.
