Rishis Sankara, Sanakasa, Sanatkumara, and Sanatsujata who are ardent devotees of Lord Siva and disengaged themselves from the worldly matters and remained naked. Once, they visited Mount Kailash (Abode of Lord Siva) to offer prayers to Lord Siva. During this time, Sachi Devi (Wife of Indra Dev), Swaha Devi (Wife of Agni Dev), Goddess Saraswati and Goddess Lakshmi also arrived in Kailash. Lord Subramanya who was sitting in his mother's lap snickered innocently on seeing fully dressed Goddesses on one side and nude Rishis on the other side. Goddess Parvati reprimanded Subramanya for his childish act. Realizing the mistake, Lord Subramanya took the permission from his mother and reached the Earth to perform penance. Lord Subramanya did penance in the guise of a Serpent and got relieved from the sin. And the place where the Lord did penance later came to be known as ‘Mopidevi’.
