ALAMPUR

Accordingly, the boy did penance to Lord Siva and Lord Siva instructed him to go to Brahmeswara Kshetras, the western gate of Srisailam, and construct temples for all the Goddesses there, and that he would have the necessary help by the grace of Brahmeswara, Jogulamba and Ganapathy.

The boy who was known as "Rasa Siddha" came to Alampur, and built the temples with the help of the above Goddesses and Gods. While Rasa Siddha was engaged in the construction of these temples, a king named Vilasat Raja, who was a Nastika, invaded this place and ruined many of the temples.

He tried to snatch away the pot containing Siddha Rasa (miracle juice) from the Rasa Siddha. This juice was said to possess the capacity of converting stone into gold. But the Siddha who knew this, cursed the King who lost all his army and wealth.

One day the King was wandering in the forest with thirst and hunger, and asked a bhila to give him some food. The hunter went into the forest in search of some food. He saw a deer and tried to kill it.

The deer, however, requested him not to kill it, and told him that it would go and come back after giving milk to its young ones. The deer also told the hunter to believe in its words and that if it did not act up according to its words, it was prepared to suffer the same sin as that of King Vilasat who ruined Siva temples.

The hunter left the deer and told this news to the King. The King followed the hunter and came to see if the deer would come back. The deer, which came back as per its words, on seeing the King Vilasat, turned its face away from the King, saying that it would not see such a sinful man.
