The arrival of Chaturmukh in Mailan (Kotgarh) was the subject of an interesting story. It is said that a young man in the Kotgarh area was always ready to fight against ghosts and demons. Having lost one eye in a battle with demons, he became known as Kana Deo (Half Blind) after his death.
Eventually, he became violent and people would offer human sacrifices to appease him on every occasion of Sakranti. An old lady had seven daughters who were offered to the deity one by one. She tried to save her last daughter. She asked Khachli Nag Devta of Tanujubbad for assistance. Khachli Nag assured her of his help, saying she should remember him when Kana Deo's servants come to take her daughter for sacrifice.
Kana Deo of Kotgarh was restless due to hunger, but the old lady was waiting for providential help. It came and the Kana Deo of Kotgarh and his temple were destroyed.
Khachli Nag was then asked by the people of Kotgarh to administer the vacant spot, but he refused and told them about three deities (brothers) of Kharahan.
People were eager to invite any of the three deities to settle permanently at Kotgarh. They left the decision up to the deities. It was decided that during Dudhbali fair, a deity whose rath (palanquin) gets lighter in weight, would be deemed to have agreed to settle at Kotgarh.
In the course of the fair, the people of Kotgarh found that the palanquin of Chaturmukh became lighter in weight, so they decided to take him back to their village. Villagers of Kharahan resisted, but ultimately surrendered to the god's will. A temple was built in Pahari style for this powerful deity in Mailan Village.
