According do Kathasaritsagara, the very same three images were worshipped as the guardian deities of an illustrious Putraka, the founder of the city. And the city is called after him - Pataliputra. Strange to note that this ancient city was called in the past by various names such as Kusumapura and Pushpapura by the Hindus, whereas Greeks called it Palibortha, and Chinese, Pa-lin-fow. Muslim rulers named it as Azimabad. Its prakrit form is Pataliputra as found in Ashoka's edicts.


The temples - Baripatan devi and Chotipatan devi open for public worship by 6 a.m.  All are admitted irrespective of any distinction. Morning rituals begin with Aarati and till 10 p m. ritualistic worship goes on, but it is only during the Mahanaivedya, the deities are screened off from public view. On Tuesdays special prayer sevices are held and people in largo numbers attend them. As in vogue of north the priests mark the foreheads of the worshippers with red powder after. Aarati.  These temples draw thousands of devotees during festive times.
