As per the Hindu Legend states the Demon Bhasmasura had meditated here and obtained a boon from lord Shiva. That when Bhasmasura had placed his hand over any one's head, he would be burned into ashes (bhasma) and in order to test his powers, Bhasmasura wanted to place his hands on Lord Shiva's head. He chased Shiva and prompted him to move from his heavenly abode to earth to seek the help of Lord Vishnu. Vishnu transformed himself to beautiful damsel named Mohini who enticed Bhasmasura with her beauty. Bhasmasura was quite attracted by Mohini, and agreed to a challenge she issued for a dance competition. In which Mohini cleverly performed dance bhang with hand over head. Without realizing the gravity of this act, the demon king also placed his hand over his head and perished by the fire and converted into ashes of his own hands. It is believed that the fire that emanated during this act was so intense that the limestone formations in the Yana area were blackened. The loose black soil or ash seen around the two large rock formations in the area is cited as proof of the legend.
