Interesting story about Changunarayan:
There used to be a cow herder, known as Gwala during the time, who bought a cow from a Brahmin in the ancient times. The Gwala took the cow to Changu for grazing and the cow could produce large quantities of milk. Changu then was forest filled with Champak trees. One day, that cow only went to one tree in particular for grazing. That evening, the cow produced a very small amount of milk, and that continued for several days. The Gwala could do nothing about it, so he called Sudarshan, the Brahmin he bought the cow from. Both the Gwala and Sudarshan observed the cow’s activities when they took her to graze in the forest. They were surprised when they saw a small black boy coming out of the tree and drinking the milk from the cow. They thought the boy was a devil, so they decided to cut down the champak tree. Astonishingly, human blood started flooding out of the tree. Both of them got worried thinking they committed a crime in cutting the tree. When they were crying, Lord Vishnu emerged and told them that it was not their wrongdoing.
Vishnu mentioned that he had committed a great crime when he unintentionally killed Sudarshan’s father while hunting in the forest. Lord Vishnu was then cursed to wander the earth on his mouth. As Garuda, he eventually descended on the hill at Changu. Nobody knew he was there, and there was no way he could free himself of the curse. He survived on the milk of stolen cow. When they cut down the tree, they freed him from the sin as he was beheaded.
Hearing this, both Sudarshan and the Gwala started to worship the spot and established a Vishnu temple there. Since then, the site is considered to be sacred. The priests in the temple are the descendants of Sudarshan.
