The legend says that when Goddess Kamakshi, one of the forms of Goddess Parvati, and Goddess Lakshmi were taking the bath in Kama Koshtam pond, Lord Sriman Narayanan was said to be hiding behind a pillar and hearing on what they were speaking about. Goddess Kamakshi found that Lord Sriman Narayanan is hearing to them by hiding himself. As a result, Goddess Kamakshi gave him a playful punishment by making him stand, then sit and finally to reside down.
