A little more, particularly her past - 'When and How' she made Indrakila her permanent abode seems quiet expedient at this stage.

According to legend, there lived in this region, in the dim past two demons - powerful and harmful. They obtained a strange boon of not meeting death at the hands of males. So they were puffed up with pride. They wrought havoc on sages by obstructing the nitya naimithika pujas - the yagasalas were destroyed and performers put to death. There was misery stationed in the asramavatikas, instead bf Santidevata moving about with gaiety, spelling light and sweetness at her every step making even the mild animals live side by side with ferocious wild animals. Unable to withstand the atrocities the sages prayed to Goddess Gowri. Pitying them, she created a powerful Goddess called Kausika and entrusted her with the task of protecting the Rishavatikas. She was a paragon of beauty, hypontising the onlookers with a single look. The fame of her bewitching beauty spread far and wide. Chanda Mundas - the preceptors of Sumbha Nisumbhas advised them to marry her. They at once set the proposal in motion - sent a message to accept them as spouses.
