Mother Durgamba Hill

This is yet another worth-visiting place after the darsan of Sri Kalahasteeswar. This is as the word
means, a small hillock of about 800 metres high, lying to the north of the temple, on the other side of the road. It is housing the image of Mother Durgamba in a small shrine. It is mentioned as Kanakachala in legends. Fortunately, the ascent is made easy with a flight of stairs, built recently. The steps are broad, of course, but very steep. So poses problem to the old, whereas the bubbling youths darting like stags reach the sanctum without stopping anywhere. There are two versions narrating the emergence of this shrine, but both speak highly of the archamurti.

According to one legend, it is the image of same Durga, who averted the danger to the meditation of Mother Parvathi, during her Vrata, commenced at the bidding of Parameswar for purification. When she was absorbed in it, Lord Maheswar created a huge jalarasi of the size of ocean with turbulent waves and formidable acquatic creatures, making ear-splitting sounds to disturb her concentration with a view to testing her perseverance.
