On Mata Tirtha Aunsi, Nepalis offer their mothers gifts and express gratitude toward them for giving birth and giving assurance.

According to a Hindu legend, a man walked through Mata Tirtha and saw his dead mother in the pond on Mata Tirtha Aunsi. Hindus also perform “Shradda” and make offering to the expired on this day.

Also according to a belief, a kid used to take his cows to feed close-by the pond. When he began eating his lunch a piece of the food fell in the pond. This incident repeated for long time with same style.
