As per the Legend, King Ravana was torturing Devatas and people of his kingdom. Vasuki, the king of Nagas, Sun God, Lord Soma or Moon God were all insulted and ridiculed and were tortured by Ravana. They all approached Lord Brahma seeking help. Brahma suggested them to install Shiva Linga and perform pooja to Lord Shiva on the banks of Gostani River so that Lord Rama takes birth to kill Ravana. Following Brahma’s instructions Vasuki, Ravi and Soma installed Shiva Linga and prayed Lord Shiva. So the puranas suggest that this is the beginning of Ramavatar.
