Centuries back, the current territory of Nepal has more or less than 54 tiny ethnic kingdom ruled by different dynasty .Malla was ruling inside the Kathmandu Valley where as Shaha in Gorkha. Nepal valley was more civilized, developed, fertile and richer than Gorkha Kingdom. In 1760s prince Prithivi Narayan Shaha from Gorkha was travelling towards his maternal mother’s home and reached on top of the Chandragiri hills .He amazed with beauty of it and noticed beautiful and well shaped valley down. He thought he would be rich and strong king if he could conquer the Nepal Valley. He worshiped the Bhaleswor Mahadev Temple exist on top of the hill and wished for successful annex. Later in 1768/69 he conquer the Nepal valley completely and started to rule from Kathmandu Once he got rich and well developed kingdom , he got more confident and keep continue to add more kingdom on his territory.

Bhaleshwor Mahadev Temple is also set up over top of the hill. According to the texts in Himvatkhanda, Dakhsya Prajapati organized one grand fire sacrifice ceremony on his home and invited all god and goddess however he didn’t invite to Lord Shiva. That news transformed to home of lord Shiva and Satidevi went back to his mother’s home .She saw everyone on that ceremony instead of her husband Lord Shiva and couldn’t tolerate all of those than jumped over the matured flame of fire. Lord Shiva became mad on lose of his wife and stepped down to earth with body of Satidevi  Heaven became silence than Brahma created a bacteria to decay the body of Satidevi. Once bacteria entered body of Satidevi , slowly different body part started to fall down in different location .Where ever body part fall down , Shakti appeared and started to worshiped as Shakti center . In Chandragir Bhala part (forehead) fall down and appeared the Bhaleswor Mahadev which is worshiped as a Shaktipith.
