Myth associated with the creation of Gosainkunda Lake states that the lake was created after Lord Shiv- the destroyer god pierced the earth with his trident when he could not endure the pain of lethal Kalkut poison which he swallowed to protect the world from annihilation. Devotees believe that Lord Shiv is still residing in the freezing water of Gosaikunda Lake. Gosaikunda Lake is sacred to religious sects of Hindus, Buddhist and shamans. Devotees flock around Gosainkunda Lake during Janai Purnima which falls each year in the full moon of Bhadra that coincides with the English month of August. Taking bath in the freezing water of Gosainkunda Lake on Janai Purnima is believed to cleanse the sin committed in the lifetime.
