has it that about two centuries ago, the southeast
portion of the hilly terrain known as the Malabar
Hill, where Lord Babulnath's ancient temple is situated,
belonged to one Pandurang, a rich goldsmith. His
cattle were grazing around.
grazing land, there was nothing to be taken care
of by Babul, the caretaker of Pandurang's cattle
Once it was noticed that a cow Kapila stopped giving
milk. On enquiry, Babul reported that the very cow,
before coming home reaches a point and suo-moto
puts out all her milk. Babul could not explain the
logic behind this, but had made Pandurang inquisitive.
very next day, Panduranga saw the scene again and
he was overwhelmed when the said cow, Kapila was
repeating her usual act. On reaching there a huge
Shivaling was found. It is the very place where
the temple has been built.
