During then, Durga, one of the amsas of the Mother, keeping strict vigilance at the bidding of Parvathi Devi, for the continuance of mediation, swallowed the entire water at a single draught. So the hindrance passed off. Lord Siva pleased with the infinite powers of Durga, changed her dark, dismal, terrific aspect into an enticing, golden-hued graceful, radiant form pleasant to look and fit to be propitiated. And she was named Kanakadurga, and since then, she is abiding on this hill. Second version narrates that she is the guardian goddess of the then village - Gramadevatha called Muthyalamma, taking seat in a small shrine below. And she was keeping guard the entire village in the nights in her dreadful form. Lord Parameswar being Bhuthanatha desired to tame and keep her under his control by strategy. So he proposed to marry her. But the presumptuous Kshudra Devata, set conditions that she would marry him only, when a big Mangalasutra as huge as the hillock, and a saree as long as the Mogileru river were given. Her pride was humbled with iron chains to the legs by the Lord. Even now iron chain is found binding her legs. The shrine is small and there on a high pedestal her image is installed. It is charming and so devotees raise hands, when she gleams to sight. Daily worship is offered, and during Navaratri, special worship is offered, when huge crowds visit and get blessed by her.
