Best Things to do in Bindusagar Lake. According to the ancient story, Shiva and Parvati after their marriage came to Varanasi. But with time, Varanasi became a populated area. Lord Siva chose Ekamra Kshetra for meditation in disguise. This place was a single huge mango tree surrounded by jungle. Even it was unknown to Parvati. This place is also known as Gupta Kashi hidden Varanasi. Devi Parvati came to Ekamra-Kshetra to search her Lord Shiva. Also, she noticed that thousands of cows are milking a place under a mango tree. She understood that her Lord Shiva is there. She took care of the cows as a milkmaid. (Gopaluni Temple is There inside Lingaraj Temple Complex and this is one out of the Astamurti) The place from which the cows were coming is known as Gosahasreswara or Gosagaresvar. Devi Parvati in the milkmaid get-up was looking too attractive. It was also noticed by the two demons of this locality, known as Kirti and Vasa. They proposed Parvati to marry. But Parvati killed the two demons by pressing them into the ground with her feet. That particular place became famous as Devi Padahara. After killing the demons Parvati became tired and took rest at a place called Bhabani Shankar Temple. Parvati felt very thirsty and to quench her thirst lord Siva struck his trident at this place, out of which a spring came out. The water was then sanctified by the waters of all rivers, streams and ultimately took the shape of a large water body. Which is today known as Bindusagar.
