Though now an idol of mahalaksmi maa has been consecrated in the annapurna temple,this temple was originally built by maharana hamir in 1300s for maa barvadi ji{ annapurna]- a "chaaran" devi maa[ considerd to be avtaar of maa shakti durga].after loosing chittorgarh in a battle,maharana hamir went to he met maa barvadi ji , who blessed him and advised him to fight again. she sent her son- baaru ji [saudaa] for maharana's help n also gave 500 horses. with the blessings of maa, maharana was able to win back chittorgarh. he then built the temple and gave baru ji the "padavee" of "barhat" , along with various villages.
