According to mythology, the right toe of Sati Devi fell down at this particular Shakti peeth. It is believed that the deity remains submerged under the Khirdighi, a nearby pond by the shrine. On every Baishakhi Sankranti, She comes out of the water and stays overnight inside the temple garbha griha. After accepting the yajnas and the special puja, She again gets back to the water of the Khirdighi where She stays with Khirakantha, Her divine consort; an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The devotees here believe in this century old legend and the same practice is carried on for ages.
