Greatness Of Temple:

   Mothers Parvathi, Mahalakshmi and Saraswati came down to earth once to perform penance. Sages Athri, Brugu, Kashyapa, Kaundilya, Triorisheya, Bharadwaja and others helped them. After a while Lords Brahmma, Vishnu and Shiva came there to take the mothers back. The power of the penance of the Rishis was such that the Lords could not go near their consorts. They sent a beautiful Gandharva virgin near the sages. Sage Bharadwaja fell in love with her and had a son.

Temple History:

   The region was once known as Vidharba Desa ruled by King Virocha. Due to a curse incurred in his past birth, he had no issues. A staunch Shiva devotee, he prayed to Lord Kailasanatha in Kancheepuram conducting a yajna. Lord Shiva made the Dwarapalakas of Lord Vishnu to be born as the king?s sons.
