History of Mandu Siddh

Dattatreya, the son of Atri Rishi and Anusaya maa was extremely intelligent and the first guru of his 84 disciples. His disciples meditated for a long period of time absolving themselves from indulging in anything else. They meditated at various places in North India. Lord Shiva was pleased by their devotion and granted them the gift of enlightenment. The devotees attained Samadhi at the place of meditation and abandoned their bodies.

The temples were built to pay homage to four of the disciples, namely Sage Laxman, Sage Munik, Sage Kalu, and Sage Mandu.
