Sandhya, an unmarried beautiful girl ends up at this temple and worships Lord Shiva who shows her the face of a man. Sandhya, however, is engaged to be married to Angad who she suspects is seeing someone else. She meets the mystery man as Angad's best friend, Kapil. A number of mishaps befall Sandhya but she is saved by Kapil each time. She decides to still marry Angad but on the wedding day, Sandhya ends up marrying Kapil first, when it is revealed that Kapil is an evil entity who had been plotting revenge for two years.Later, She realises her mistake and her love for Angad and marries him, thus breaking her marriage with Kapil. However, Angad is soon possessed by Kapil who murders Ashutosh. Kapil also wants to impregnate Sandhya so that she bears his child in her womb. With help from Lord Shiva, a possessed Angad is able to reveal the truth to Sandhya who decides to protect Angad from Kapil by tying a rudraaksha around his neck.

Sandhya discovers Kapil's past, he was a just man living with his wife Sakshi and son, Shakshi is later revealed to be Sandhya's abandoned twin sister, and Usha and Vinayak's lost daughter. After Kapil and his family were murdered by Ashutosh, Manoj. Bhairavi and Jolly, he and Sakshi turned into vengeful spirits seeking revenge on the perpetrators of their family life. Sandhya tries to convince Kapil and Sakshi to stop the killings and then Kapil's spirit is forced unwilling to leave Earth with the help of Shivji's priests. However, before leaving Kapil had succeeded in his physical relationship with Sandhya. Thus she becomes pregnant with Kapil's child. She decides to keep the baby with support from Angad and their families. Soon, Sandhya gives birth to a baby boy named Prem. However, Sakshi's spirit blames Sandhya for her abandonment and kidnaps Prem.

7 years later

After a while, Angad and Sandhya have a daughter, Aastha. On the other hand, Sandhya misses Prem and is desperately searching for him. Prem is shown to be living in Kapil's house like an animal, completely untouched by human interaction. Soon Sandhya finds Prem and brings him home, but he is not well accepted by all the Jindals due to his wild behaviour. A rift develops between Sandhya and Angad due to Prem, as Angad starts feeling that Sandhya favours Prem who is her and Kapil's son over their own daughter, Aastha. Sakshi returns and becomes jealous on seeing Prem's growing attachment towards Sandhya. She soon takes control over Sandhya's body with the help of tantriks. However, with the help of a psychic named Rekha, Sandhya is able to find the truth behind Sakshi's death and convinces Angad to help her. Sandhya tells Sakshi that she will sacrifice herself and her life and leave everything to Sakshi. Sakshi is moved by Sandhya's kind act and finally decides to leave giving Prem safety to Sandhya.

After Sakshi's departure, Prem is constantly haunted by an evil entity named Bhao. Since Prem is a child born through the union of a human, Sandhya and Kapil, a spirit, he is supposed to possess special powers. Thus, Sandhya being a mother now becomes a kavach (shield) for Prem protecting him from Bhao.
