MOTHER KANAKADURGESWARI OF VIJAYAWADA

SKANDA PURANA

According to it, Indrakila a humanist sage once supplicated the Mother Parvathi to be born to him as daughter to protecting the worlds. She then said to him "Your desire, dear son, is highly laudable and your manavatha is exemplary. I will certainly fulfill your desire, if you turn yourself into a hill." He willingly accepted. Hence the emergence of Indrakila parvatha and the Mother taking her seat after the death of Mahishasura for which she descended to Bhuloka. Haven't scriptures cite several instances of the renowned Maharshis transforming themselves into hills and rivers for promotion of dharma and offering asylums to divinities and tapasothamas. Most of the mountains are but the blessed physical frames of manavathavadi Maharshis-humanist sages. Hasn't Meru's son Bhadra transformed himself into Bhadragiri to becoming the permanent seat to Sri Rama? Indrakila likewise metamorphosed into hill for making Mother Durga dwell on him eternally. When Durga under the august name of Kanakadurga took her seat, people heaved a sigh of relief and enjoyed graceful life; and their dharmika activities went on uninterrupted. Needless to prolong that the entire region boomed with round the clock spiritual activities - singing, choral, instrumental, chiming of bells etc., that made people prosper in every field of activity. Its spirituality  then onwards started mounting up and seems proceeding to eternity. It never confined itself to commonalty, but-the royalty of the distant antiquity too found this hill congenial for spiritual sadhana, as exemplified by Arjuna's penance here for obtaining Pasupatastra.
