This ashram of sage Madhas is mentioned in the Markandeya Purana, Sri Sri Chandi, or Devi Mahatmyam or Devi Bhagavata Purana. According to the Markand Purana, Goddess Durga was the first to descend into the ashram of this sage Madhas. According to the Sri Sri Chandi texts, King Surath and Vaishya Samadhi took the lessons of the first Devi Mahatmyam from Maharshi Markand and performed the first Durga Puja at this place. Apart from the main Chandi temple, there are Kamakhya temple, Shiva temple, Kali temple, Sita temple, and Sita pond.
