Legend has it that a demon couple named Daruka and Daruki were extremely cruel. Once Daruka, himself a Shiva devotees, captured a great Shiva devotee called Supriya, a merchant who was sailing with his goods.
Lord Shiva appeared in the form of a jyothirlinga from the earth to save Supriya. The linga here thus came to be revered.
