A TEMPLE FOR RAMA AND LAKSHMANA 

It is believed that below the sanctum there is a cave and also a golden Vilwa tree. Some say, it is because of this that the place came to be called Vilwamala.

According to another legend when the power of the Vishnu deity increased enormously the asuras feared their end would come soon.  To prevent this one asura assumed the guise of a Brahmin and came to the temple.  He mixed freely with other Brahmins and participated in the temple feast with them.  At night he would haunt the temple, would kill the cows and other animals and oat their flesh.  He throws the bones and horns at one place, which became a heap.  This is still called muri kunnu (muri means ox and kunnu means hill.)  This aroused the suspicion, of other people -who were frightened beyond their wits.  They prayed to God.
