At a distance of one and a half kilometers from the temple, the mother appeared in a dream to a person of Pilkholi village and told about her idol buried in the ground at one place. Devi said that by building a temple there and consecrating the idol, the people of the area would get rid of wild animals.
After which the people of the village took out the idol from the ground and built a temple of the goddess there.
