All the demigods approached Lord Shiva for help, he told them to go to Lord Vishnu. All of them reached Lord Vishnu and asked him to give some solution to get away from Mura. Indra told Lord Vishnu that Mura lives in the city name, Chandravati.

Lord Vishnu, the demigods and the demon had a fight for many years. Hence, Lord Vishnu went to a cave to take rest. Mura decided to kill Lord Vishnu in the cave. Since, Lord Vishnu was taking rest, a beautiful damsel appeared and started fighting with the demon. After a long fight, the damsel defeated the demon and killed him. When Lord Vishnu woke up, he saw that the damsel had already killed the demon. When asked, she told that she has originated from the body of Lord Vishnu.
