According to mythology, during the wedding of Lakshmi and Narayana in Satya yuga, Indra insulted Muni Subrata. The saint got so enraged by humiliation, that his body got bent at eight places. Hence he was called Ashtavakra muni. Later Ashtavakra muni went to Varanasi to do Tapas but he was directed by a divine lord to go to a distant place in Gaur (Bengal). So he came in search of a suitable location and found this place convenient and started his penance here for several years. Pleased by his devotion, Lord Shiva blessed him. Shiva also requested Vishwakarma to build a temple for him. There is also an idol of Ashtavakra muni in the temple.
