To unravel this mystery, we have to go back a hundred and a half years. The history of Itachuna palace must be seen. But there is no particular document, document, or record of the family from which the reason for not worshiping in this strange Shiva temple can be known.

The reason for the mystery is revealed in the papers of some local researchers and the stories passed down through family generations. It is heard that in 1871, Vijay Narayan Kundu, the head of the family, got a quote from the then British government to lay a railway line in the Giridi region. Vijay Narayanababu while working in a forest in Giridi region came across a strange Shiva idol. That Shiva idol looks very strange. It is as if Devadidev is sitting in a fight.
