According the legend, Surya Dev the sun god, married Sangya, daughter of Vishwakarma. They had twins, Yamuna and Yama. But Sangya could not bear the fierce heat of sun; she created a clone, Chaya, and begged her to take her place, Sangya then left Surya Dev's home. Chaya agreed to keep the secret but said she would reveal the secret if ever Surya dev punished her by pulling her hair, one day the child Yama tried to stumble her. Insulted Chaya cursed him that his leg would decompose and fall off, Surya dev was surprised and angered by the severity of curse, accosting her in anger, he pulled her hair, Chaya thus exposed that she was not his true wife, and only the stepmother to Yama and Yamuna. It is said that Yamuna came down to earth, did severe penance and successfully saved her brother from the curse, the god of death, then offered her a boon she asked that her devotees be protected from Akaalmrityu (untimely death). Hence from belief that a bath in the water of Yamunotri protects devotees from untimely death and leads to mokshya.
