As legend toes King Khadga Bam Malla, King of Ganga in Kathmandu was a veritable devotee of goddess Bindhabasini. One night goddess Bindhabasini did appear in his dream and order him to bring her idol from Bindhyachal Pradesh, India and place her in Nepal. Porter carry her idol from India and rest overnight at that place; next morning the porters got up and tried to lift the idol of Bindhyabasini to their surprise they could not even move the idol an inch. With great amazement the porters ran to the King and described the whole story, but they became even more surprised when they found their King did not show any sign of astonishment. Later on, the king told them about the wish of the goddess and that she wanted to stay there permanently. The whole story was later written in a Bhoj Patra during the reign of King Bhirkote.
