Mythology describes that once Lord Brahma felt restless and called upon Lord Ganesh to help him. The place where Lord Brahma attained peace is known as Theur.
Another legend elaborates how King Gana a headstrong ruler forcefully obtained the Chintamani ratna from Saint Kapila. Saint Kapila prayed to Lord Ganesha who fought Ganaraj to obtain the Chintamani. However, the sage preferred the Lord to the jewel. So, Ganesha stayed on in Theur with Kapila, taking the name of the jewel Chintamani.
