As per legacy, King Veersen considered the birth of his son as a bless of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati and constructed this temple for Goddess Bambleshwari Devi. King Madansen had a son named as Kaamsen. A big battle took place between king Kamsen and king Vikramaditya, due to the love between musician Maadhavnal and Kaamkandla, who was a bayadere. Legacy says that after the death of Maadhavnal & Kaamkandala, King Vikramaditya felt guilty as it was his mistake due to which Maadhavnal & Kaamkandala lost the lives. He thought that he was responsible for their death. He underwent deep meditation to get rid of this pain. Maa Bagulamukhi Devi appeared in front of him. King Vikramaditya requested goddess to restore the lives of Maadhavnal and Kaamkandala. He also asked Bagulamukhi Devi to stay at this temple. Since then, Goddess Bagulamukhi Devi is present at this temple. After, the name changed from Goddess Bagulamukhi to Goddess Bamleshwari Devi.
