It is believed that his soul was wandered around the area of his tomb around Bijayapur and was said to have friendly and helpful spirit. So, local Limbu people started worshipping the soul believing it to bring good luck. There used to be a legend kiranti hunter Budha Subba who gave up hunting when he missed his aim for crow and hit the tip of bamboo. From that day, the tip of bamboo tree never grew back. So, Budha Subba gave up hunting burying his slingshot and started meditation. Temple is standing on the same spot where he meditated and temple’s name is given on his name.
