Over time, this temple has garnered fame for its rich traditions and has become a popular tourist destination as well. The captivating legend behind its establishment narrates how Lord Hanuman, seeking an honorarium from the god of Sun, agreed to bring Shanidev, the Sun god's son.
However, when Hanuman approached Shanidev, he was attacked, resulting in his black complexion. Undeterred, Hanuman successfully brought Shanidev to his father, and as a token of appreciation, the god of Sun declared that anyone who worships Lord Hanuman on Saturdays will be immune to the adverse effects of his oblique glance. This divine tale adds to the temple's allure, drawing visitors seeking blessings and protection from Shanidev's influence.
