The legend has that at the time of deluge all the deities and sages approached Lord Shiva and prayed to protect the living beings on the Earth.  Lord Shiva instructed Sage Durvassa to construct a pond at this sacred place and worship Lord.  Sage Durvassa and a group of sages sincerely followed the austerities and worshipped Lord.  Lord was pleased at the devotion of Sage Durvassa and the sages; the brimming sea water was crammed into the pond.   Thus, the living beings on the Earth were saved by a mysterious power of Lord Shiva.
