Bindu Sarovar, an Artificial Tank is one among the five lakes. Bindu Sarovar is the holy place to perform Matru Shradd, Shradd ritual for mothers, and thousands of people from all corners of the country visit it annually in (October/November) Kartika month to perform the rituals to their beloved mothers. 

Sage Kardam father of Sage Kapil lived here. Kardama and his wife Devahuti had son nine daughters, Kapil, Kala, Anusuya, Sraddha, Havirbhu, Gita, Kriya, Khyati, Arundhati and Shanti and  the daughters were got married with Marichi, Atri, Angiras, Pulastya, Pulaha, Kratu, Bhrigu, Vashistha, and Atharvan respectively. Kardama became ascetic and left Bindu Sarovar. Kapila became the head of the ashram. Devahuti remembered that Vishnu incarnated himself as Kapila to spread Sankhya Yoga, which is combination of devotional service and mystic realization. Devahuti treated Kapila as God and have anxiety to learn Sankya Yoga from him. She said that she was disturbed with her material senses and requested to tell the path for salvation. Kapil explained the importance of Sankya Yoga in detail. Sankya Yoga helps the soul (Atma) of human to reach the God (Paramatma). Purusha exhibits his power on Prakruthi and with the influence of Prakruthi, he begins to take on characteristics and this form is known as the Jeeva Atma. Then the feeling of “Mine” starts from “I” and Purusha know the difference of Jeevatma and Paramatma causing the feelings of love, disgust, angry, like follows Happiness and Sad.  

Devahuti asked the way to overcome the suspect ability of Magic. Kapila explained in detail to Devahuti. The soul should not be subjected to the emotional states and it is critical due to the influence of Prakruthi on him. The soul fully concentrated on God give no room to other views like a glass filled fully with water will not entertain any other object in the glass. Devahuti raised doubt that the soul of human tagged with various views and to explain the way to wash away other views to concentrate soul on meditation. Kapila clarified that devotion on God with the association of other devotees, listening incarnation stories of God and chanting of God will release the soul from other views. Then the soul will attain concentration in meditation. Residing in a holy place, taking minimum feed for livelihood and living with others with love omitting enmity will attain concentration on God. Then only one can know that the soul (Jeevatma) and God (Paramatma) are one and the same. The devotees leaves all the desires and there will be only one ambition on salvation. All the devotees irrespective of gender linked up with devotion on God leave anxiety on birth and death and attain salvation. 

Enlighten the things to Devahuti and other residents of the Ashram, Kapila left Bindu Sagar like his father Kardam. Sages and other local elders used to urge him to follow his way. He has settled in an island of the sea and started to deliver prophecies. Devahuti followed the instructions of Kapila and got removed her flaws from her mind. She shed her body which formed as Holy River named Gyanavapi. Sages will take bath in the holy river to for purification of themselves. The holy place became famous pilgrimage center with the name of Siddapur. Once King Sagara performed Ashvamedha Yaga and his 60000 sons went as escort to the horse. They saw the house in the Ashram of Kapila and they have disturbed the yoga of Kapila. Kapila get angry and all the 60000 were burn to the fire released from the eyes of Kapila. In due course Bhagiradha from the lineage of Sagara performed penance and brought Maa Ganga from heaven to earth. The ashes of the 60000 sons of Sagara strained with Ganga and they attain heaven.  Hence there is the role of Kapila to bring Ganga from heaven to earth.
