PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

Now, the story, as it goes, is quite good, but unfortunately at variance with history. The Adil Shahi dynasty did not come into existence before 1490 A.D. May be, the incident took place with regard to some Moslem merchant, whose wife, quite probably being a convert, had recourse to a navas to Parashurama and later on the name of the Adil Shahis was brought into it.

Some Marathi chroniclers mention that Shivaji had visited the temple before 1674-when he was crowned as a monarch. One Govind Anant Joshi acted as an upadhyaya on this occasion and Shivaji made a grant towards the regular expenses of the temple.The later history of the temple was as turbulent as the life of the god himself. And the cause of the struggle was not quite dissimilar. Formerly it was the kshatriyas who had created the trouble, now it was the Yavans. Then it was Bhargavrama who had come to the rescue of the oppressed, now it was a person of an equally strong determination that came to the rescue of Parashurama.
