Once Lord Brahma has got pride that he was the ultimate Creator of the entire Universe. Lord Brahma thought that he has got more powers than Lord Shiva.
Due to his pride, Lord Shiva destroyed Lord Brahma’s Fifth Head, and also he got cursed from Lord Shiva, and due to that he had lost his creative powers.
In order to get relieved from the curse, Lord Brahma went on a pilgrimage of Lord Shiva Temples.
During his travel, Lord Brahma visited this temple and performed severe penance on Lord Shiva and worshipped him.
Due to his severe penance, Lord shiva appeared in front of him and liberated him from his curse. Lord Shiva also had given the power of creation to Lord Brahma.
Due to the blessings of Lord Shiva, Lord Brahma had got a separate shrine at this temple. He also advised Lord Brahma that the fate of those devotees who visits this temple should be rewritten.
Hence by worshipping Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati at this temple, we can expect a good change in our life.

There are 12 Shiv Lingams found in this temple which were installed and worshipped by Lord Brahma.
