According to the Hindu religious texts - Shiva Purana, Devi Bhagvata, Kalika Purana and Astasakti. There are four major sakti peethas and they are called Adi shakti peethas. The Peethas were originated from the parts of the Goddess Sati`s corpse. The four Adi Shakti Peethas are Vimala Temple inside the Jagganath Temple of Puri, Odisha (navel); Taratarini Temple in Berhampur, Odisha (breasts); Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati, Assam (Yoni or genitals) and Kalighat Kali Temple in Kolkata, West Bengal (right toe). These are the four Adi Shakti Peethas.

Among the 51 shakti peethas, the four shakti peethas are considered to be Maha/major shakti peethas because we get their references in the great religious texts Shiva Purana, Devi Bhagavata, Kalika Purana and AstaShakti.
