Arjuna withstood; Lord Siva was pleased, yet thought fit to put him to test. Disguised as hunter, he descended on this spot and started chasing a boar, created at mere volition to enacting a make-believe hunting. The grunting of boar and chasing sounds of the hunter disturbed Arjuna's tapas. When the tumult went beyond the point of endurance, he shot at it with a single arrow and brought it down. But at the same time another arrow came fast and hit the boar, laid low by Arjuna, followed by the hunter, who reaching the spot bent low to pick up the killed. Arjuna objecting him said that it as with his arrow alone that the boar had fallen down dead but was stubbornly opposed by the hunter. This war of words led to war of muscles and in the end, valiant Arjuna vanquished the hunter. Siva rising revealed his nijarupa, and said that he was pleased more with the latter's manliness and valour investing his personality than the cause. Immediately, handing over the potent Pasupatha, he blessed him Victory in the future war. It was indeed a great battle-a mortal scoring victory over immortal. So could be called the greatest. It was immortalized by Bharavi, a literary giant in his Kiratarjuneeyam. As this exciting event took place on this hill, Arjuna built an imposing temple for Lord Siva in commemorate anon of his great clean victory. It is now called the Vijayeswara temple and is ling on the sacred bank of Krishnaveni. This entire episode is represented on the stone in the same temple. The stone-cutter's artistry is superb. Recognising the enormity of eminence attached to it; the rulers that followed renovated it fittingly. Theists visit this hoary shrine and offer prayers recalling to their minds the thrilling battle fought between Lord Siva and Pandava madhyam Arajuna.
