    Sthala purana:

    Once upon a time, Ujjaini faced a big drought. In those days, Jayatsena is the king of Ujjaini. Sandeepa maharshi came to Ujjaini in the occasion of Kumbha mela. The king requested Maharshi to do some remedy. Sandeepa maharshi prąyed Lord Mahakaleshwar and relieved drought. He established an ashram to teach students.

    Sri Krishna and Balarama came to the ashram run by Sandeepa maharshi. They requested him to take them as his students. Sandeepa maharshi trained them with Sudama and the sons of Jayatsena.

    Sri Krishna and Bala rama learned Dhanurveda and Astras in sixty four days, Elephent and Horse training in twelve days and Vedas in fifty days. Lord Sri Krishna established Gomati kundam for Sandeepa maharshi.
