Apart from the district, devotees from other provinces also come to visit and worship Kali Devi temple. According to the legend, about 400 years ago, a merchant named Junadas got the temple built on the fulfillment of his wish.
The elders tell that earlier the means of commuting for the traders were river and boat. Around 1750 the merchant Junadas was returning from business. Suddenly his bag full of silver coins went missing. He worshiped the idol of the little mother Kali on the side of the ghat and made a vow that if the bag is found, the temple will be built. In the night, the mother appeared to the merchant and said that the silver bag was buried in the sand in front of the place of Barmdev Baba.
When the merchant excavated at that place, the bag was found. After this the merchant built the temple. Manoj Kumari, who came here from Shyam Nagar, Kanpur, says that the daughter had been married for eight years, but had no children. When the vow was sought, the daughter became a son. For three years, continuously come here for worship in Navratri.
