The philosopher Durvesha is picked up for dinner by Rukhmini Devi and her husband, Lord Krishna, at the start of the Hindu mythological tale that gives rise to this temple. Rukhmini Devi made a pit break along the journey to visit the Ganges to get some water, assisted by her husband. Durvesha Muni, who was notorious for having a short fuse, became quite upset when she refused to give him any water. To break from Lord Krishna, he, therefore, called for Rukhmini Devi. Because of this, her shrine is outside the city limits, although Lord Krishna's temple is located inside Dwarka.
