Once upon a time all the sages, along with Sownakar, went to Brahma and asked him for the best place suited for doing Yagam and meditation. Brahma took a darba grass blade and converted it into a wheel rolled it. Brahma said that the place where it stopped would be said to be the ideal place for doing tapas and yagam. The place where the grass blade stopped is called as Naimisaranyam. An Ahobila Mutt Jeyer attained Paramapadham in this place and as his sannadhi, his remembrance and the mutt of Ahobilam is opened in this holy place.
