There was an interesting legend associated with the Baulnath temple. The place where the Babulnath Temple is situated, a rich goldsmith named Pandurang lived there with the cattle grazing around. But any care was not taken by Babul-caretaker of Pandurang's cattle stock. Suddenly a cow named Kapila stopped to give milk and it became daily affair. After reporting he noticed that the cow gave all milk at one spot before coming to home. His curiosity was increased about what the reason is behind. This happened again but he was overwhelmed when he saw a huge Shivaling there. This inspired to make Babulnath Temple on that holy place in 1780.
