A new shrine is coming up befitting the status of the Lord and will be opened with due Saivagama rules shortly. Adjacent to this lies a beautiful row of three temples built for Vinayaka, Nataraja and Sivakami Sundari. Offering prayers to them, we next hurry to Malleswara Swamy temple, where a grand Sivalinga was worshipped first by Brahma with jasmines and followed by several celestial celebrities, like Vishnu, Indra, Brihaspathi, in addition to incarnations, like Sri Rama, Sri Krishna; together with Matadhipathis, like Adisankara anti Maharshis such as Goutama, Vasistha etc. Being All-merciful, he is Justifying the attribute bhakta pari jata by raining boons on the ardent devotees timely and abundantly. At all times too. This shrine, though given importance next to that of Mother Kanakadurgeswari, has many legends equally awe-inspiring, and antiquity that begins in the hoary past. One of the legendary accounts dates back to the beginning of this Kaliyuga. And to be precise it took place as early as year 177, when a certain king by name Madhava Varma extended his sway over this region. It was during his reign lord Siva rained gold, and so the city went by the name of Kanakapura for some ages.
