Kashi is a holy city that is one of the world's oldest cities. The Sanatan, Buddhist, and Jain faiths all have writings that describe this city. It was the first city of Lord Vishnu in the holy age, according to Sanatan religious traditions. The head of Brahmaji clung on Shiva's kartal when Lord Shiva became enraged and cut the fifth head from the ground. Despite Shiva's best attempts, Brahmaji's head adhered to Shiva's actions. Brahmaji's head was once severed from his deeds when Lord Shiva visited Kashi. Lord Shiva was set free from Brahma's killing at the time. Knowing this, Lord Shiva was pleased and expressed his desire to live in Kashi city, which he asked from Lord Vishnu.
Story of Mata Annapurna
According to mythology, there was once a food shortage on the earth. This sparked a worldwide outcry. In current times, experts predict that the planet will face a disaster in the near future. Tridev was worshipped by the inhabitants of the earth at the time, and they alerted him about the food crisis. Adishakti Maa Parvati and Lord Shiva came on the earth after that. Mother Parvati adopted the form of Annapurna and provided food to Lord Shiva after seeing the people living on the one-of-a-kind creation of nature miserable. Lord Shiva delivered the food to the inhabitants of the planet at the same moment. The grain was later employed in agriculture. Then the food apocalypse came to an end.
