MOTHER KANAKADURGESWARI OF VIJAYAWADA

ANTIQUITY OF INDRAKILA MOUNT

The Indrakila Hills according to certain legends was the manifestation of the Sailasakti of the Indrakilaparvatha itself. Tradition says that when the menace of demons - asurabadha went beyond endurance to the people living in this region, Indrakila- a Sakteya of great name did severe penance, propitiating of-great Parvathi. When pleased, she asked him to spell out his desire. Being a highly evolved tapasvi, he implored her to take here seat on his head for exercising eternal vigilance over the area to punishing the rocked and rewarding the genuine devotees with boons. Gratified, she sealed it with her approval; and after killing the dreadful demons, she made Indrakila her permanent abode as desired. The power of his penance is still permeating the whole area and by, the presence of Mother Parvathi in the role of Durga, it is enhancing the glory of this kshetra. In the Skanda Purana this accounts is narrated with a slight variation.
