All the gods approached Lord Vishnu after being fed up from the terror of demons but Lord Vishnu refused to help them. Then, all the gods went to Brahma Ji and even, Brahma Ji refused to help the same.

At the end, all the gods advanced towards Lord Shiva and narrated everything to him. Then , Lord Shiva incarnated himself as Khandoba, a smelly gigantic warrior, in order to kill the demons. This warrior appeared to be shining like gold and sun.

In addition to this, this warrior’s face is covered with turmeric. After this, Lord Shiva went to fight with both the demons.

Lord Shiva accepted his boon. In this pretext, Mani is worshipped in the form of Devta with Lord Shiva in all the temples. After this, the second demon i.e. Malla also asked for a boon by tendering his apology.

Malla said that he wanted the boon of absolute destruction of the world. Hearing this, Lord Shiva cursed and beheaded him and said that whosoever would enter the temple of Khandoba, Malla’s head would be crushed under the feet of that devotee.
