It is assumed that Brahmins from all over India were invited when Parshuram performed the Mahayagya at Nirmand. Gaud Brahmins came from south India to participate in the rite. Parshuram then offered the brahmins land here and told to settle here. The gaud Brahmins settled in Olva village of Anni area. They built a temple there and established their own devta. Later on it was named as Kulkshetra Mahadeva. Later on the statue of Parshuram was also placed in the temple. The devta has eight mohras. Seven mohras have inscriptions. Deuri Durga, Vadi Durga are said to be the sisters of the devta. Devta travels to Saryolsar on pilgrimage.
