The food is essential for all mortals to survive even for the gods. The mother Annapurna is the creation of the Hindu mythology as a material proof that the world survives on food. The legend is once the Shiva was explaining the meaning of creation and the Maya. In the discussion, the Shiva explained to Parvati the world is nothing, but a big illusion. And everything here is the part of the trick played by Maya, even the food. Hearing this, the Mother who is the manifestation of the material world became angry and left. It landed the world in a unique situation and earth became barren and void of any food material. Then Shiva unable to manage food for his child started begging for food. The mother Annapurna hearing this met Shiva at Kashi and given her food. The Shiva realised his fault and erected a temple at Kashi.
