According to ancient legends, Gods chose this place on earth to establish Dharma. However, a demon named Vrittrasur was proving to be a major hurdle in the way of Gods. Thus, the Gods requested a highly powerful sage named Maharshi Dadhichi to give his bones in order to create a weapon to kill the demon. Today, Naimisharanya Misrikh has numerous pilgrim places to see around.

People say that anyone who meditates hard enough over here and rids oneself of worldly desires will definitely attain some amount of divine power and force. Every year, in the Hindu month of Phalgun, a temple festival known as Chaurasi Kosi Parikrama is held in the honor of the sage.
