Assiciated with Uma and Maheswara's sports and Sage Agasthya's tapas, this kshetra occupies a prominent place in several legends, and hence many versions are available with variations, aiming at the glorification of the presiding deities through episodes of unearthly splendour and glamour. It is one of the ashtadas a Sakti-Peethas. Legends narrate that the wedding of Parvathi and Parameswar is the principal cause of Agasthya's advent to Sonadri, an integral part of Sahyadri range of mountains.

Now listen to the legend. Lord Parameswar although felt elataed at the sight of the entire Devaganas mukkoti devatas at Kailas on his wedding day found to his dismay southern tip of the earth was tilting to wards the north due to the presence of such huge congregation at one time. And sure the south would be lifted aloft resulting in a great catastrophe soon.
