According to a mythological legend there was a pandit in this town of Zaffargadh who in his dream saw Narashimha Swamy who was telling him that Lord manifested himself on this hill. The old Brahmin was given the detailed position of manifestation by Narshimha Swamy himself and was asked to spread this to people of his town. The pandit then followed his dream and went to the location on this hill where he located Narashimha Swamy's idol at the location of manifestation.
