HISTORICITY

And this was done about ten centuries before. There lies the holy Chakra thirtha very near enabling the visiting public to take holy bath. The architectural splendour of this tower is of high order deserving unqualified praise. Chola kings who succeeded to Pallavas in adorning this temple, and adoring Sri Kalahasteeswar, broadened the prakaras and widened parikramana marg. Credit goes to Kulothunga Chola for this memorable Kainkarya. Finally, with the building of the hundred pillared mandap by Sri Krishna Devaraya, the Andhrabhoja after his conquest of Kalinga, the constructional programme reached Finale. Several pious bhaktas and philanthropists built pendli mandap etc., for the benefit of locals and yatris. Some of the devout members of the royal families built mandapas and flight of stairs from temple to Kannapa temple atop. The building project commencing from the tenth century thus spread over ten centuries to take the present shape. All donors were richly rewarded by the infinite compassion of the Lord. He is karunaika sindhu, whose compassion knows no bounds, nor his hands ever found shrunk to giving boons.
