When the atrocities perpetrated on the innocent and ascetics including gods mounted, the captive gods prayed to Lord Maheswar for release. Deciding to put an end to the gravity of the torture, the Lord promised help through his son Gunesh soon. Thus emerged Gunesh into this world, but his infancy and boyhood were fraught with dangers. Sindhu, through his bhrityas decided to destroy Gunesh, but the parents guarded him always. Once he was swallowed by a giant Kardam, but came through the same mouth, tearing it to pieces. And before his grieving mother, he delivered a death blow to the tormentor who fell down dead. Knowing this, Sindhu determined to put Lord Siva and his family in the prison along with Brahma, Vishnu, Devendra etc. When his indomtable general, Kamalasur came on this purpose, a tough trial of strength between Bala Gunesh and Kamalasur ensued, and it was a child's play for Gunesh to kill him. With a single stroke he cut him into three bits and threw them into three directions, the legs fell at Padmalaya, torso at Rajur and head at Morgaon.

Soon after this spectacular victory, Gunesh making Morgaon his abode ordered Viswakarma to build a city for him around the place of battle with Kamalsur. And this is the Mayureswar kshetra which shot up into a prominence after a fierce war with Sindhu aided and abetted by Nandikeswar, Bhutanath and the whole army of ganas rallied under his banner. As Sindhu was blessed by Lord Surya, the battle turned stiff and went on for days but ended with the death of Sindhu, when the formidable ankush of Gunesh struck him against his chest. All the captive gods were released at once.
