According to scripture Himawatkhanda in the ancient Nepal the Bhala in Sanskrit language which means the forehead, of Satidevi, first wife of lord Shiva had fallen down from her decayed dead body in Chadragiri hill and became as a sacred place. Satidevi jumped into the fire when her father insulted her husband Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva carried her body and wandered as a mad man in the love of her wife. On the way the dead body started to fall down but he was not aware of that. When he reached on the top of the hill the Bhala had fallen and become one of the power centers for the worshiper of Lord Shiva named as a Bhaleshwar Mahadev Temple. It is the saying that our wishes come true if we ask from our heart in Bhaleshwar Mahadev temple.
