Indira the king of Devas could not get a Shiva Linga for his worship in the morning hours when he once came to earth. He gathered the sand from Cauvery, made a Linga for his worship. He also sang a melodious song seeking the dance darshan of the Lord. Lord was pleased with his devotion and granted the darshan he desired and is praised with name Gana Nardana Sankara – Lord who danced to a devotional song. When he left the place, Indira left the Linga made by him here. His finger symbols are visible on the Linga.
