LEPAKSHI

Though the misery of the parents was very great, still since their adherence to the rules of hospitality was very strict, they promised to do so and in fact put the plan into execution, the mother holding the boy, and the father severing the head. The mother, in order to remind herself of her dear son, kept his head away. But the Lord insisted that it should also be disposed of. When the food was about to be served, the Lord asked them to call out their son, and when they came and called out Sriyala, the lad came from outside due to the divine mercy. Thereupon Lord Siva gave them his darsan and disappeared.

This famous story of Siva Bhakti is depicted in the bas-reliefs on the outer wall of the temple, with a fineness and vigor that is rarely met with. Similarly the story of Kiratarjuniya or the story of the fight of Arjuna with Lord Siva, while performing his tapascharya on the Indrakila hill in order to obtain the Pasupatastra, is also depicted here in the bas-reliefs of the temple.
