Mother Katyayani is thought to be worshiped in two ways in this location. Sage Katyayan, according to legend, knew the Kaushik River, now known as Koshi, had austerity on the coast. Mother Durga agreed to be born as the sage's daughter because she was delighted with the penance. Since then, he has been referred to as Katyayani. Furthermore, it is thought that this location was once encircled by dense woods some 300 years ago.
