There are many legends about the birth of Urvashi.The following one is the most prevalent one. Once the revered sages Nara-Narayana was meditating in the holy shrine of Batrinath situated in the Himalayas. Indra the king of Gods did not want the sage to aquire divine powers through meditation and send two apsaras to distract him. The sage struck his thigh and created a woman so beautiful that Indra’s apsaras were left matchless. She was Urvashi the nymph.
