The wicked demon Bakasura, who terrorized the residents of Ekachakra for many years, lived here. This demon used to eat one human each day from the villagers of Ekachakra. The people were so terrified that they voluntarily set up a system where one villager from a different family was sent to Bakasura. The mother of the Pandavas, Queen Kunti, feeling compassion for these villagers, requested her son Bhima, who had the strength of 10,000 elephants, to send this demon to the abode of Yamaraj. After a furious battle, Bhima killed the demon and the village of Ekachakra was again able to live peacefully.
