The mythological importance of this holy shrine begins with Vasudeva's efforts in keeping safe of his eighth issue and carrying the back to joil female child born to Yasoda.

As the epic says, this female child after predicting the impending disaster of Kamsa flow into sky and vanished to his petrifaction. And it is said that after that momentous pronouncement she settled down here and carried out several beneficial acts for Viswasreyas. Among them, killing of Sumbhu Nisumbhas tops the list. It is one of the sakti-Peethas and tantric literature glows eloquent in delineating the sacredness of this place.

Another distinguished feature that it embodies is the existence of the icons of Trimurtinis - Mahalakshmi in the name of Vinshyavasini, Mahakali in the name of Kalikouli and Mahasaraswati in the name of Ashtabhujamata. On account of its pouranic importance and existence of Tri Saktis it is luring lakhs of theists in steady, regular steams of bhaktas throughout the year. For north India, it is an indispensable pilgrim centre who visit in lakhs during periodical festivals and spend lavishly on illumination and decorative items. The festivals too last for weeks and confer mental tranquility and spiritual selace. Regular worship is offered with due rituals according agamic injunctions.
