LORD SRIKANTESWARA OF NANJUNGUD

Then Mother Parvathi out of compassion for the worlds within her Lord's stomach and for the safety of his person held his throat tight with her hands. The poison then stopped going further down,' but stagnated in the throat, for the Lord instantly brought his lips close for not letting it out back again, lest the conflagration resulting from it would leave the worlds in heaps of ashes. As the poison settled down in his throat, he was called Srikantha - one with poison in the throat, and another name for Nilakantha since his throat turned blue due to the presence of poison. This Lord Maheshwar averted the calamity and bore the torturous effects of poison settled down in the throat. Indeed, his compassion for humans and passion for Jagatkalyana are proverbial and inimitable. This happened here and hence the land turned sacred and sacrosanct. It was called Galapuri or Garalapuri suggesting its origin.
