Legend of the Temple:
The temple encompasses a stimulating legend behind it. Sri Shyam Prabhu was in his earlier birth in Dwapara Yuga was Barbarika, the son of Ghatothgacha and Kamakantkata Ma More. Ghatothgacha was the son of Bheema and Hidimbi. Barbarika learned the art of warfare from his mother More. Ghatothkacha was distressed what his son Barbarika would become. Therefore, he visited Lord Krishna and placed his son at the lotus feet of Lord Sree Krishna.
Barbarika becomes all powerful Lord Shri Krishna proud of the devotion of Barbarika instructed him to worship and do penance to Sureshwari Bhavani Bhagvati at a vicinity called Mahisagar that that his Gupta Kshetra. Barbarika followed the advice of Lord Sree Krishna and loved spiritual being immortal Devi. Happy at the side of his worship, spiritual being Bhavana Bhagavathi Maya gave him three powerful arrows. Since then, Barbareeka came to be said as adolescent Baan Dhaari, which suggests the owner of three arrows. Later Agni, the god of hearth gave him a bow making him still plenty of power in three worlds.
When sacred text war was happening, Barbarika told his mother that he would go and participate in the sacred text war and facilitate the weakest side. At the side of his mother Morvi’s blessings Barbarika at the side of his three powerful arrows and a bow cosmopolitan on his blue horse to Kurukshetra where the war was happening. The ever-knowing Lord Krishna knew all this and wanted to see the power of three arrows that Barbarika was carrying on and to stop Barbarika from serving on the weakest side, clearly the Kauravas.
Krishna tests Barbarika:
Krishna disguised as a Brahmin stopped Barbarika on the strategy. He mocked, aggravated and ridiculed Barbarika for going into the war with merely three arrows. Babarika replied that one arrow was enough to destroy all his opponents among the war and are available back to his quiver. He aforesaid the first arrow will mark and bind all the things into a target. The third arrow will destroy all the things that unit of measurement marked. The second arrow will save all those things that unit of measurement marked. On exploitation the third arrow, it will destroy all the things that do not appear to be marked. In different words, with one arrow he can mark all his targets and with the alternative he can destroy them.
Krishna then asks him to tie all the leaves of the peepal tree into a garland. Barbarika accepts the challenge and starts meditating to unhitch his arrow by closing his eyes. Then Lord Krishna whereas not the information of Barbarika plucks a leaf from the tree and puts it on his foot. Once Barbarika releases his initial arrow, it marks all the leaves of the tree and finally starts revolving around the leg of Krishna. For this Krishna asks Barbarika about why the arrow was revolving around his foot.
Barbarika replies that there is a leaf below His foot and conjointly the arrow was targeting his foot to mark the leaf that is hidden there under. Barbarika asks the Brahmin to maneuver his leg else the arrow will mark the Brahmin’s foot two beside the leaf. The Brahmin moves his foot and conjointly the arrow marks the leaf that was below the foot. The third arrow gathers all the leaves and ties into a garland. Once the humanities tasks all the arrows come to the quiver. Presently Krishna shudders to assume what if his arrows bind all the Pandavas into a target and destroys them at the side of his third arrow. Thinking thus, Lord Sri Krishna set to stop Barbarika from getting to the war on the side of his three arrows.
Barbareeka pleases Lord Shri Krishna:
The Brahmin praises Barbarika and his nice powers. Happy Barbarika raises the Brahmin to raise one thing about him that he would grant his wish. Clutching at the prospect, the Brahmin asks Barbarika of his head. Though scared Barbarika being a king cuts his set out and offers it to the Brahmin. This happened on the January 6 of the Shukla Paksha (bright half) of the month of Phagun (mid-March to mid-April) on Tuesday. The Brahmin reveals his true identity and speaks to Barbarika that he has come to stop him from getting to the war and from fulfilling the word given to his mother Morvi; and thus save Pandavas from being destroyed. To boot, it’s customary to provide a brave man’s head as a sacrifice to the battlefield; and since you are the bravest I asked for your head in charity. Barbareeka says that a minimum of he would love to appear at the sacred text war. Lord Sri Krishna takes high the pinnacle of Barbarika and places it on prime of Capitol Hill. Lord to boot granted Barbarika a boon auditory communication that he would be converted in Kaliyuga as Shyam (one of the numerous names of Lord Sri Krishna). Some thousands and lakhs of years later in Kaliyuga, Barbarika’s head was aforesaid to have been found by a hand terribly very village called Khatu Khatank in Rajasthan.
