Legend of Mopidevi Temple:

Four Rishis namely Sanakasa, Sankara, Sanatkumara, and Sanatsuja are familiar for their persistent devotion towards Lord Shiva. They disconnected themselves from the avaricious world and remained naked. Once all the fours rishis went to Kailash to worship Lord Shiva. At that time Sachi Devi, Swaha Devi, Saraswati Devi and  Lakshmi Devi also arrived at Kailash.

Lord Subramanya was sitting in his mother Parvati Devi’s lap. He was confused to see both Rishis and Gods. As the gods were fully covered in clothes and Rishis were naked. So Lord Subramanya chuckled on seeing that.

Parvati Devi scolded Lord Subramanya for his act. Later Lord Subramanya realized his mistake and took permission from Parvati Devi to perform expiration. Lord Subramanya performed penance in the form of a snake and got relieved from his offence. Later the place where Lord Subramanya performed penance became familiar with the name “Mopidevi“. In Skanda Purana, Rishi Veda Vyasa mentioned about the piousness of Mopidevi.
