BILASPUR

"A legend goes that a cowherd of village Makri noticed a cow entering the cave daily and returning after some time. Once he followed the cow and to his surprise saw a sage performing havan inside the cave. The sage asked the cause of his visit. The cowherd bewailed his poverty. The sage gave him a handful of rice. The cowherd tied the rice in a piece of cloth but later spurned the gift of rice and threw them away.

A few grains, however, remained stuck in the piece of cloth. When he came out of the cave, he found that the few grains of rice had turned into grains of gold. He was then tempted and ran back to collect the thrown rice but was disappointed to find that a part of the cave had slid down and blocked the way. According to another version it is also said that father of Markandey used to live here.

He performed penance to appease Brahma for the sake of a son. His prayers were rewarded and he was blessed with a son. From then on people ate rewarded with sons, and many of the diseases are cured by having a dip in this spring near the cave."
