Lord Vishnu was describing to Sage Bindu, the various forms in which the former was present in the Holy city of Kashi to bless the devotees. In his form as Adi Keshav, the Lord has installed Sangameshwar Mahaling near Varuna river.By merely worshipping Sangameshwar, the devotee is cleansed of all his sins. (Kashi Khand, Chapters 61 and 97).  It is also believed that performing Rudra Abhishek at Varuna Sangameshwar Ling is equivalent to donary (donation made for religious use) of a Cow to a deserving person.  (Godaan).

Mythologically speaking, where two holy rivers join together, the place attains spiritual importance.  Devotees can find Varuna Sangameshwar almost at the point of confluence of Holy Rivers Varuna and Ganga.
