Her story is mentioned in Hindu Puranas and folklores. Moodevi is believed to have appeared during the Churning of Ocean or Samudra Manthan by Devas and Asuras to get Amrti or elixir. She appeared after the appearance of Goddess Lakshmi. Moodevi went to Bhagvan Srihari Vishnu and asked him an abode to reside.
