According to a mythological belief, the moon god, out of the 27 married sisters, he was bias regarding his favorite wife which made his father, curse him to have his brilliance occupied by the dark nights. Panic stricken moon went to several holy places in order to reduce his grief but nothing came to his hands at the end. At last he came down to Somnath and worshipped lord Shiva whole heartedly for many years. Shiva pitied him bade that he should wane in brilliancy for only 15 days in a month, recovering his lost splendor in the following fortnight. The rejoiced moon then made a golden temple as an offering to lord Shiva. As the moon realized and regained his brilliancy, it was named as prabhas, meaning ‘the exceedingly brilliant’.
