A sage by name Salihotrar performed penance on the banks of this temple tank for a year. He completed his pujas in Thai (January-February) month and offered a flour as Nivedhana and was about to share it with somebody before eating. An old Brahmin asked for it. The sage gave it to him. The guest was not satisfied with it and demanded more and host happily parted with the remaining quantity too. The sage observed fasting and began his penance from the next day for a year. After the penance, the sage was waiting for a guest as before and the same Brahmin came and consumed the whole quantity and also asked for space (Evvul-Where) to have a sleep. The sage offered the space. Next moment Lord appeared before the sage in a reclining form and asked his wish. Sage begged the Lord that He should solve all the problems of the devotees and the Lord granted the boon, so goes the story of the temple.
