Legend

In the scuffle that ensued between King Sahastrarjuna and Sage Jamadagni over latter's cow Kamadhenu, the sage died and his wife Renuka suffered wounds. Parashurama, their son cremated his father and Renuka committed Sati. A voice from the heavens told the grief stricken Parashurama that his mother would come out of earth but he should not look behind. Not able to contain his eagerness, Parashuram turned and Renuka stopped with just her head out.
