- Brief history
- Local tradition
- Story of sculpture as narrated by Sadananda Gurda: Durga sculpture is from a place called Upardeeh. It was found in a well by a local doctor’s daughter, who brought the sculpture to her house and installed it. Subsequently her whole family perished in a plague, which was brought by some people from Himanchal Pradesh state of India, including daughter. The doctor attributed this misfortune to the instillation of the statue in his house, and as a result threw the sculpture in a cremation ground in Gaya. Later the sculpture was brought to the temple and installed in a grilled enclosure near Vishnupad.
