BILASPUR

Khanmukheswar temple in tahsil Sadr has again different versions of origin worth a mention :-

"According to one, the temple was constructed in the memory of Kartikeya the eldest son of Siva, who was deprived of the throne in preference to Ganesh, the second son. Because of the partiality of Sati Parvati towards Ganesh, Kartikeya was cheated of his rights who was enraged and vowed to remain celebate. He took a vow that he would never bear the sight of a woman and that if any woman were to come across him she would turn barren for seven births on end. Under the dread of this curse, no woman ever visited this temple until about thirty years ago.

The second version is that while Siva was reciting Amarkatha to Parvati and she had fallen asleep, a parrot nestling in the tree above started repeating, aye. At the end of the story when the God Siva broke his trance, he found Parvati fast asleep. He then looked for the repeater of aye. The parrot being thus detected flew away to save its life with Siva in his pursuit. The parrot eventually entered sage Vyas cave, entered his body of the sage's pregnant wife and was born as Sukh Dev. The Siva did not enter the cave for fear of the wrath of the sage Vyas, and therefore, seated himself at a place known as Khanmukheswar and himself went into trance"
