As per legends, Lord Brahmma grew proud of his boon of longevity spanning many Yugas.Lord Narayana wanted to teach him a lesson. Sage Romesa performed penance here for the darshan of Lord. Lord appeared before the sage and said that he would live longer than Brahmma whose longevity would be reduced by a year when one hair fell from his body. Brahmma repented his mistake for being proud and arrogant about his longevity that Lord had indirectly taught him a lesson. Lord Narayana graced this place with His Trivikrama form,scaling the whole world with left foot pointing toward the sky.
