Temple History:

   There once lived a theatre artist Mithrasaga in Agaram village who was spreading the glory of Sriman Narayana through his Dasavathara dramas throughout the country. He enacted one such event in Kashmir in the presence of King Kungumangadhan and princess Chandramalini. The princess fell in love with the artist. With the acceptance of the parents, the marriage went off in a grand manner. They had a happy married life as a role model to others. During their old age, the couples built a hermitage and were engaged in the service of Lord Narayana. Pleased with their pure life, Lord Vishnu appeared before them on a Dwadasi day (12th day from new moon or full moon day) on Masi month (February-March) and taught them the great "Ohm Namo Baghavate Vasudevaya" mantra.
