Story of Kalyanji Temple

Legend has it that King Digva had leprosy as he was cursed by a celestial maiden. He became a leper as he had offended the maiden. To get rid of leprosy, the king offered penance and did intense austerities.

As a result of his penance, Vishnu appeared him in his dream and told about a buried murti on seashore. The king was asked to install the murti in a temple. When the murti is installed the king will be cured of his illness.

The king followed the dream and installed the murti in a temple. That temple is the Kalyanji Temple at Diggi in Rajasthan.
