Legend has it that a devout woman named Kusuma used to worship Lord Shiva by regularly immersing a Shivalingam in a tank, as a part of her daily ritual worship. Her husband's first wife, envious of her piety and standing in society killed Kusuma's son with an axe. An aggrieved Kusuma, however, continued her daily worship of Shiva.
When she immersed the shivalingam again in the tank, to the surprise one and all, her son was miraculously restored to life. Shiva appeared in front of her and the villagers, and ever since then the shivalingam here has been worshipped in the form of a Jyotirlinga Ghusmeshwar.
