PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

One day it so happened that a cow stood over a particular spot and let her milk flow down on it. This was repeated day after day. This greatly puzzled the cowherds. Then a person saw a dream in which Parashurama appeared and informed

him that he was staying in a ‘gupt’ or secret non-visible from at the spot. The spot was then onwards worshipped by some devotees. It is know that there was no image on   the particular place till the Parachure mentioned above placed it there. The credit of having erected a temple to this deity goes according to legend to a Moslem princess. It is stated that around 1400 A. D. some princess of the Adil Shahi dynasty has dispatched a flotilla of merchant ships loaded with a valuable cargo. News reached her that powerful gales had set in on the high seas. She was naturally greatly worried. She had heard the story of how Parashurama had cowed down the sea and decided to appeal to him to come to the rescue of her ships. The cargo came out unhurt from the storms and the princess out of gratitude erected the temple.
