Legend of Charbhujaji: According to legend the idol of Charbhujaji is very old and was worshipped by the Pandavas in the past. It was installed by Gang Dev who received divine instructions in a dream from Lord Vishnu to recover the idol. Gang Dev is said to have recovered the idol from water. The image of Vishnu is 85 cm high and has four hands (hence the name Charbhuja). The four hands hold Conch, Discus, Mace and a Lotus flower. One characteristic feature of the temple is the extensive mirror works inside.
