It is mentioned in the Aadi Parva of Mahabharata that Sauti narrated the entire story of Mahabharata in Naimisharanya with the inspiration of sages. In the Mahabharata period, its importance was so high that all the shrines of the earth were considered to exist here. The Mahabharata Van Parva describes an ancient pilgrimage named Naimish Kunj which was constructed by the sages residing in Naimisharanya.

The 84th chapter of Mahabharata Van Parva describes in great detail the importance of Naimish Tirtha, according to which Naimish Tirtha is a sacred and virtuous pilgrimage served by the Siddhas where Brahma, along with the gods, resides forever. Half the sins of a man entering Naimish are destroyed at that moment and man is freed from all sins. A person who fasts for life in this shrine experiences joy in all the virtues.
