The main temple in the complex is west facing and is dedicated to Bal Jageshwar or the child form of the Hindu lord Shiva. According to a legend, Lord Shiva came here to meditate. Knowing this, women of the village gathered in order to get a glimpse of him.

In order to control this chaotic situation, Lord Shiva transformed himself into a child. Since then, he is worshipped here in the form of Bal Jageshwar.
