As per stahalapurana, Shiva tested Parvati's commitment in performing Tapas by setting fire to the mango tree under which she was seated unable to bear the heat, Parvati worshipped Vamana. The Lord came to her rescue, when He appeared with Sudarshana Chakra and showered Amruta kiran (Rays) and helped her complete the Tapas, The Lord is called Nilathingal Thunddathan as He helped to remove the difficulties to Parvati. It is believed that Lord Vamana continues to remain here at the request of Parvati.
