The legend says that Lord Shiva and his group of 1 crore Goddesses and Gods were traveling to Kashi. On the way, they rested to halt at night with the orders of Lord Shiva to wake up before dawn. Unfortunately all except Shiva slept on which enraged the Lord who cursed and transformed them all to stone. Lord Shiva then proceeded on alone. Hence, you can see “1 less than crore” images here.
