As per sthalapurana, the Saptarishis refused to receive dhan (alms) from King Vrishadharbi, son of Sibi Chakravarthy as they thought it is a sin to receive alms from the kings. The king tried to lure them in many ways and subsequently arranged to kill them. The Lord saved the rishis by killing kritiyai through Indra. The Saptarishis established that Sriman Narayana is the Paradevata and the Lord took the name Mayapiran at this place.
