There is a popular mythological belief which has come down to people through the centuries that in a village Ghoghu
, King Ghangh
loved and married an Apsara
(nymph) on the condition that he would not visit her palace without prior information. King Ghangh got a son called Harsha and a daughter Jeen. Afterwards she again conceived but as chance would have it king Ghangh went to her palace without prior intimation and thus violated solemn vow he had made to the Apsara. Instantly she left the king and fled away with her son Harsha and daughter Jeen whom she abandoned at the place where presently the temple stands at place known as Jeenmata
. The two children here practiced extreme asceticism. Later a Chauhan
ruler built the temple at that place.
