This is one among the Ashta Vinayaka temples, and like the rest has a long legend visualising the Omnipotence of Ganesh and his restoring of the rare jewel called Chintamani to Kapil Maharshi. Mudgal Purana recounts this fantastic story, beginning with King Abhijit, whose son Guna obtained many boons from lord Maheswar after dirgha tapas - the chief being his establishing rulership over the three worlds, in addition that he would not die at the hands of those possessing three gunas. Puffed up with egoism, he started exercising unlimited powers crossing the norms of Dharma. Once he went on a hunting expedition and approached Kapila Maharshi's asram for rest and food, when thoroughly tired. Welcoming the king with due honour, the Maharshi sumptuously fed the entire party with delicious items, which he materialised with the power of a unique Jewel called Chintamani, given to him by God. The King then asked him to part with it. On denial, he snatched it by force and left the asram.
