GAYA 
The holy Pitru Kshetra

One day when Dharmavartha was shampooing her husband's tired feet on request, Brahma paid a casual visit. Stopping the shampooing for a while, she got up to extend hospitality due to her father-in-law. In the meanwhile, Marichi woke up, seeing her absent and deeming that as willful abandonment he flew into ungovernable rage and cursed her to become a stone. Though docile and chaste, considering his anger unjustifiable, she retaliated In a fit of anger, uttering that he would be burnt to ashes with Mahadeva's third eye. Thereupon, she sat in deep mediation to get remission and obtained the boon that she would be sanctified by the presence of all gods on that accursed sila at a particular moment when used to steady the rising head of Gaya. Further, due to presence of nods on it, it would liberate ancestors if pindas are placed on it. This pious wish was also granted and since then that sacred stone is called Munda-prishta and is preferred for placing pindas. And it is also worshipped with great ardour due. Devout Hindus offer pindas on it first.
