Manka Dai was established after the Ratanpur royal family conquered the Sambalpur state.
Due to the drain and trees and plants, the movement of people was less.
That’s why not everyone knew about it.
Legend has it that in 1963-64 Baba Harinath of Haryana appeared in a dream in Kolkata by Manka Dai.
At that time he used to worship in Dakshina Kali temple.
Manka Dai told him about Madanpurgarh and informed him about the statue being near the drain.
Then Baba Harinath reached there and started living in a hut.
One day a cowherd was watering the cattle when he saw the idol and informed Baba about it.
Baba Harinath installed the idol under a tamarind tree and started worshiping it.
It is a belief that every wish with a true heart is getting true.
