It is believed that once these two sages went to Vaikuntam for Lord Vishnu Darshan, but they are not permitted by the guards Jaya and Vijaya at the Entrance of Vaikuntam . These two sages then cursed the guards that they will take birth as Danavas or demons. After three rebirths, these two guards regained their original form and went back to Vaikuntam. Local inhabitants also believe that the theertham has some divine and yogic powers and devotees should take a holy dip in its water on the day of margazhi
