The original Jayanti Mata temple was built by Pandavas in Himachal Pradesh. Legend behind the shifting of the shrine, talks about a young princess who was an ardent devotee of Jayanti Mata. When her wedding was fixed, she was filled with grief at the thought of going far from the deity of the Goddess she worshipped everyday. The Goddess appeared in the young girl's dreams and promised to go with her wherever she went. After the wedding ceremonies, when it was time for the bride to go, a strange thing happened. The doli turned so heavy that no one could move it. The bride told the father about her dream. The King removed the idol from the shrine and gave it to his daughter. The priest and his family also followed the Goddess. The king of Hathnaur, to whose brother the princess was married to, then established a temple for the Devi on a hillock in his estate. The temple was renovated and extended by a robber named Garibdas, a devotee of Mata, who used the money the stole to help the poor people in need.
