Legend has it that a cow herder noticed one of his cows to regularly visit this place. One day, he followed it, to find that it regularly showered its milk upon the Shivlinga. And this incident led to the discovery of the shrine. Apart from this story and a few other folk songs, there is no other mention of the Shivlinga.
