Every year during Janai Purnima in August, thousands of Hindu pilgrims come here to lake holy bathe in the lake. The lake is believed to have formed from the digging of the land by the Trishul (holy three-pointed sword) of lord Shiva after he drank the poison from Samudramanthan and desperately wanted cold water to quench the overwhelming heat of the poison.
