Younger Daughter was beautiful and called by the name Reddamma. One day while Redamma was guarding the fields, The Nawab of the region saw this beautiful girl and ordered his staff to bring her. Frightened Reddamma tried a lot to escape from the soldiers and prayed for Lord Siva and Goddess Parvathi to rescue her. A bright light then appeared in the sky and the hill got the crack which absorbed soldiers and Reddamma. One soldier who saw this incident reported this to the Nawab and they left the place.
