Bhaleshwor Mahadev Temple is another name for the structure. Hindu worshipers travel to this location to offer prayers and worship Lord Shiva. Hindu followers believe that the all-powerful Bhaleshwor Mahadev grants the wishes of everyone who visits Chandragiri Hill to pay respects to him. A journey to the hilltop can help one obtain a pass to the afterlife's Shivaloka.  According to the narrative in Himvatakhanda, Bhaleshwor Mahadev appeared where Satidevi's dead body's "Bhala," or the forehead, had fallen off.
