Here hot water pond are famous for recovery of any scene disease. 

As legend goes, lord Rama along with Sitaji and Brother Laxman was camping in jungle as a part of fourteen year of exile. They reached Dandakarnya ( Dang District of Gujarat ) . Sharbhang sage welcomed Sri Ram in his ashram. And looked after them very well with great love and affection. Sage was suffering from the leprosy and his body was badly smelling, in this painful condition with the help of yoga power he changed his outer appearance. Even with painful condition he followed Sri Ram on foot to see him off his area. 

Laxman came to know his painful condition and he told about it to Sri Ram, Lord Rama took his arrow and pierced the earth. Hot medicinal spring erupted out. Sage Sharbhang took bath and he was immediately healed.Seeing this Sitamata also took bath in the same hot spring and informed Sri Ram, “ Hoon nai “ (means I took bath) . This place came to be known as hoonnai. With a passage of time it came to be known as Unai . Nowadays this is a pilgrimage center known as Unai.

Since then hot spring is constantly flowing. Also flowing the faith in the temple. Pilgrims from far off places come to visit this place. As mentioned on the notice board of the temple. Discharge of the spring is about 5500 gallon per hour with temperature ranging from 57 to 61 degree centigrade.
