The appearance of Khandoba in the hill has a fascinating background, and it happened in 1750 AD. It occurred - Strange it appears that once some cowherds resting under the shade of a big tree found a stranger meeting surprisingly and taking a seat with them. His appearance and manner of moving set them thinking, as who he was and how he came. Just then, the stranger found a devotee by name Bhaya approaching in a flash, he disappeared forthwith. The awe-struck cow-herds told Bhaya of a stranger's strange appearance and disappearance in their midst, when questioned. To his amazement, Bhaya found a Sivalinga of Halad in the exact place where the stranger had sat. Identifying him as Lord Khandoba, he started praying it. The villagers deeming him as a madman threw away the linga. And lo! it returned to the same place appearing extremely brighter than before. Then they realised their folly and accepted its divinity. The next question that confronted them was, with whose devotion it came to stand there. An ingenious method was suggested by someone among them. It was agreed to draw twelve lines on the ground and to strike with pickaxes on them.
