After independence, the city continued to maintain significant momentum and was the site of the first power station in this part of the country. There are many legends about this picturesque slow-paced city, and it is said that it was the battlefield of the war between Harry (Lord Krishna) and King Banasura (the devotee of Lord Shiva). Local tradition says that Lord Krishna’s nephew Aniruda fell in love with Usha, the king’s daughter, and Usha did not approve of his marriage. The king put the young prince in prison, and when Lord Krishna discovered this, he attacked him with all his strength. Banasura lost the war and asked Krishna not to kill him, and then he showed the couple sitting in the royal carriage to the lord.
