MOTHER KANAKADURGESWARI OF VIJAYAWADA

There lived in the capital then one old woman living on selling tamarind-tintrini jivini - She had a son, an only one at it. She brought him up well, intending to lean upon him during her advancing in years. Alas! this young boy met his death at the ands of the Crown Prince by mere accident that intent deep or malice. Learning this, she walked to the court with eyes streaming, heart heaving and head reeling. She narrated her pathetic tale to Madhava Varma. Seeing that Sokadevata narrating her heart-rending misfortune, he was moved beyond description. Renowned as an incarnation of justice, he at once passed the verdict - death by hanging to his own son-the king designate. The audience fell prostrate at his Judgment. There descended then the Omni - compassionate Siva and showered bright pieces of gold on the King in token of his appreciation. God, making kanakabhishek to a human! It is only Siva that could demonstrate such acts spectacularly exemplary. He gave life to the dead. The grateful king built on imposing shrine and installed a Siva linga unique at that place. It is on this Indrakila this occurred.
