    This temple was built in typical Nagara temple architecture and when Varanasi was first inhabited then Goddess Annapurna found that the task of feeding so many persons was too heavy for her. the mother Ganga came to her relief and told her that if she would bestow a handful of pulse on every applicant then she would contribute a brass vessel full of water and Annapurna confirmed with the suggestion. So on the ground in front of the main gate of the temple, there are so many beggars seated most of the days and this is the history of this temple.
