Heersen had no son, so one day he requested Kshetrapal in these words, “If you gove me a son, then I will spend one lakh twenty five thousand golden coins for the development of your temple”.
By luck, Heersen became the father of a son, now it was the duty of Heersen to spend the said golden coins for the development of the temple of Kshetrapal but he had not much of money left now. He tried his hard to collect money but even after eight years he could not succeed. Kshetrapal became furious and entered in the body of child Khetal and created many sorts of troubles. The whole of Jaisalmer was tired of thes troubles created by Khetal.
Acharya Jin Dutt Suri arrived in Vikram Pur, at that time Heersen requested the Acharya to do something so that there could be peace. Acharya by his divine powers made Kshetrapal normal and ordered him not to create any trouble in further.
