One day Lord Surya positioned a Mahashiv Ling which is popularly known as Gabhasteshwar and a Devi idol of Maa Gauri known as Mangala Gauri at Trailokya Vishrut, Panchanada Teerth (Panchganga Ghat).


After installation, Lord Surya started praying tremendously. he prayed for over 1 lakh years. during his intensely pray, he began to become hot each day, and the daily activities of human beings started to come to a standstill.


People could not bear such heat waves coming from Lord Surya. one day he became extremely hot and unbearable for which Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati had to appear before him. They were deeply impressed by the immense devotion of Lord Surya. Lord Shiva gently touched Lord Surya, which made him gradually colder than before.


Lord shiva asked Lord Surya to open his eyes and stop his further praying. Lord Surya greeted him and started praising the lord and goddess. they asked Lord Shiva to seek a boon, they granted lord Surya several boons.


Later Lord shiva told Lord Surya that while praying, one could not evident his body which was covered by scorching sun rays. since that day, this form of Lord Surya came to be known as Mayukh Aditya.


Mayukh means something which is lucent and vivid. Lord Shiva also stated that a devotee who worships Mayukh Aditya on Sundays will never fall ill and disease would always be in distance. (Kashi Khand, Chapter 49).
