History of this Temple
According to vedic scriptures, Lord Shiva spent a night here and meditated when Lord Shiva was visiting Mathura after the birth of Lord Krishna to see his child-form. He had vowed that if he could feed Kanha in his lap, then Lord Shiva would remain seated in the Shivling at this place.
When Lord Shiva went to Kanha’s house to see him, Yashoda Maiya was scared to see his ashes and cooted form, then Yashoda Maiya thought that Kanha would be scared to see Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva sat under a banyan tree and meditating there. Then Lord Shri Krishna started pointing towards Shiva while crying.
