Accordingly a holy tirth came into existence here and the forest became sanctified. This is also the place of samadhi of Rajendrasurshvarji. A fair is held here every year on the fiteenth day of the bright half of the month of Kartak, and the month of Chaitra and also on the seventh day of the bright half of the month of Posh.

Other Temples: Near the temple, there is Samadhimandir of Acharya Rajendrasurishvarji and Yatindrasurishvarji.
