MOTHER KANAKADURGESWARI OF VIJAYAWADA

'Bejjam' is the Telugu word for tunnel or hole. As the tunnels are made in the hills around at the bidding of Lord, this area was called then Bejjawada or Bezawada, for short. It went by the name of Bijapuri for another reason - the river used to carry many bijas - seeds grown abundantly in its course and was depositing herbs and shurbs at the hills here, and it was called Bijapuri-Medicinal plants grew in abundance. Yet there are few more names, like Phal una Kshetra due to Arjuna's Victory over Lord here on the hills,and Kanakapura, on account of gold rained by Durga after killing Mahishasura. According one version Lord Maheswar's compassionate. action of showering gold pieces during king adhavarma's reign,, it was called Kanakapura. Jayapuri for scoring Victory over the wicked demons; Rajendra cholanagar due to the fact that it was ruled by a long succession of imperial chalukyas etc. These august names were given to it at different times by different people for different reasons.
