The function of Brahma creating the world – has been completed, while Vishnu (the preserver) and Shiva (the destroyer) still have relevance to the continuing order of the universe.

With the passing of the period of major Aryan influence, these deities re-emerged more powerful than before. The lake has a mythological significance associated with it. According to myth, Lord Brahma was on his way to search for a suitable place to perform a “Yagna’ (a fire sacrifice) while contemplating, a lotus fell from his hand on the warth and water sprouted from that place.
