In ancient times there was a godly king named Mahidhwaj. His younger brother Vajradhwaja was very cruel and unrighteous. The younger brother wanted to kill the elder brother. One day in the night he killed his elder brother Mahidhwaj. He buried his dead body under a peepal tree in the forest.

Due to premature death, the king started living on the same peepal in the form of a spirit. Being a spirit, he started torturing there. One day when a sage named Dhaumya passed from that Peepal tree, he saw Mahidwaj ghost. The sage understood the story why he became ghost with his tenacity.
