Earlier it was a small pious stone worshiped by a marwari family within Fatehpur Shekhawati, Sikar, Rajasthan. It is said as there were less opportunities existing within those days at Sikar, Rajasthan the marwari family decided to shift to Hyderabad for business but before moving requested their family Guru to bless them so that there business is successful at Hyderabad. The Guru gave them a small pious stone i.e., Shaligram to worship for the success of their upcoming business. The lady of the house started worshiping Shaligram at Hyderabad but one day the pious stone disappear. She was very sad and started crying. That night Shaligram God appeared within her dream and told her not to worry as he is within the house but wishes to be worship by Tulsi – not available commonly within Hyderabad those days in the year 1723 thus, shift him to Vrindavan where there is lots-n-lots of Tulsi is present.

Shaligram was found but it suddenly turn into huge – Sava Man – the weight. Upon request from the lady Nizam transferred Shaligram to Vrindavan through his workers which were fishermen.
