DRAKSHARAMA

The name Draksharama is said to be a corrupted form of 'Draksharama' or the garden of Drakshaprajapathi. The place is said to depict the well-known puranic legend of Dakshaprajapathi's Yagna. According to this, Dakshaprajapathi's daughter Dakshayani had married Lord Siva, though Drakshaprajapathi was not very happy over it. Once Drakshaprajapathi performed a great yagna, to which, out of his 'dambha' and 'darpa', he did not invite Lord Siva. Dakshayani was anxious to attend this Yagna of her father, but at the same time could not openly attend it in as much as her Lord viz., Lord Siva, had been deliberately excluded from it. She was thus torn between two compelling desires. Finally, she resolved to attend the sacrifice even though she too had not been invited as the consort of Lord Siva.
