 A TEMPLE FOR BHARATA

Long before the installation of Bharata, the place had something divinely unique about it.   The entire area was a dense forest inhabited by a community of rishis headed by Kulipini Maharshi.  They were engaged in incessant Yagas to please Mahavishnu. The Lord, pleased by their penance and devotion, appeared before them and desired to know their wish.  All they wanted was His presence at the place.  The Bhagawan readily agreed.

The place was probably not inhabited for several hundred years.  And when people came to live here the divine chaitanya materialized in the form of Bharata as narrated in the legend above.
