The legend goes like ‘shiv linga’ embedded in this temple has emerged on its own – it
being one of the miracle which has been attracting the followers of Lord Shiva ever since
its inception. According to local priests, near the temple, the great Maratha rulers used to
worship and seek blessings before proceeding with their victory processions.
During British times the Indian army was called ‘Kali Platen’ known as the black army.
As the temple was located close to the army barrack, it is been known by the name of
‘Kali Paltan mandir’. Its close proximity to the Indian army camps offered a safe haven for freedom fighters, who used to visit and stay here for their secret meetings with the officers of ‘Kali Paltan’.
