The King had married the beautiful young girl named Champaka who was from a lower caste at the Anandapura fort. She was accused of wrongdoings by the citizens of the state and when the King also had come to believe that, she was heartbroken and committed suicide by drinking diamond powder mixed with milk. Later when the King came to realise that he misunderstood his queen due to the citizens, he erected the monument to express his everlasting love for Champaka.
