Legend Associated With Dev Diwali Fast 

According to mythological beliefs, a monster named Tarakasura had three sons- Tarkaksha, Kamalaksha and Vidyunmali (Tripura). When Kartikeya, the son of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati killed Tarakasura, his three sons started performing austerities day and night to avenge his death.

Pleased with the austerity, when Brahma Ji asked them their desires, they sought the boon of immortality. However, Brahma ji knew that if he fulfilled this desire, it could cause major trouble. In such a situation, he refused to bless them with this boon.

Brahma ji then told the three brothers to ask for another boon instead. Then the three sons said that they want a city to be built and named after them, and whoever wishes to kill all three of them should do it with a single arrow. Hearing this, Lord Brahma gave his blessings and fulfilled their desires.
