According to the legendary story of Amalaki Ekadashi, in the ancient times there was a state where the people including the king were Very faithful. People of all castes resided there and practice all the religious rituals with full dedication and were immersed in the devotion of Lord Vishnu. The Chandravanshi king Chitrasen who used to rule the Kingdom, himself kept this fast of Amla ki Ekadashi with true devotion. Not a single evil, sinful or tyrannical person lives in that city.
According another story once a king named Devyog forgot his path and took rest under an Amla tree. He fell asleep as he was very tired and at the same time some evil people arrived at that place. Seeing The King alone the evil people attacked him. According to the same story when the king went hunting some people surrounded him and attacked him suddenly. The Wicked people were such that the king fainted and fell under the Amla tree.
When the Wicked people attack the king sleeping under the Amla tree using their weapons it took the form of flowers and fall to the king. After this a divine power appeared there and it destroyed all the evils. When the king opened his eyes all the evil sinners were destroyed.
