According to a local story, there was an old and poor woman who earned her livelihood by selling firewood. One day, as usual, she went to fetch firewood. Suddenly she fell on a thorny bush and lost her sight.
Then a small girl appeared to her and escorted her to her home. The girl told the old woman that she should dig at the place where she had fallen and recover and idol of goddess and asked her to install the idol. She further told her to dig a pit nearby place and that water would strike there and she should perform abhisekham of the idol. She should then sprinkle the holy water on her face to get back her eyesight.
