According to legends, Yamuna the daughter of the Surya Dev after getting cursed reached Mathura after wondering at different places. Goddess Yamuna took rest at Mathura and the place where she rested got famous as Vishram Ghat. Lord Yamaraj who is the son of Surya Dev and the elder brother of Goddess Yamuna came to Vishram Ghat to meet His sister. It is believed that it was an emotive meeting for Lord Yama and Goddess Yamuna. Goddess Yamuna did auspicious Tika to Lord Yama and in return Lord Yama asked Her to make any wish which He can fulfill. Goddess Yamuna asked that anyone who takes dip in my water at our meeting place would never go to Yama Lok.
