According to legend Sri Mahavishnu did penance propiating Lord Suryanarayana for 12 years to get her karunakataksha after sage Brighu's rash action. No sooner was her wish fulfilled and regained her former position she chose to abide in this Kshetra, where great sage Sukhabrahma lived along with Munikulam. A little flash illumines the cause of her descent to Bhuloka. 

There are several versions trying to lift the curtain on Mahavishnu's appearance on the sacred Hills; each has its own setting, time and situations, and what is more each makes a credibly delightful reading, due to the divine, fragrance it is anointed with. According to Padma Purana, once there was performed a great yagna in Naimisaranya on a grand scale attended by celestials too. During the course of it, there arose a dispute regarding the supremacy of gods among the Trimurthis. Each learned scholar and spiritual luminary advanced his argument with evidence justifying his selection. The plethora of proofs in respect of each claim was so confusing that the elders thought it fit to send one sage for on-the-spot observation and report the findings for conclusion by the committee formed for this. The choice fell on Sage Brighu, son of Brahma. Brighu first went to Kailas.
