square shaped shrine lying between two hills is supposed to have built by
Adikavi Valmiki Maharshi. Brahmanda Purana records that this Jnana Saraswati
icon now worshiped was installed by him before coming his magnum opus the
Ramayana. And Lord Vinayaka, is it said, is entitling agrapuja here due to his
adoration and a mark of her anugrah he received. The temple built in the
Dravidian architectural style possesses all the main parts like garbhagriha,
mahamantap, prakaras, gopuras and the like.
Icon of Lakshmi is also installed in the grabha griha along with Jnana
Saraswati. The Valmiki's image installed in the courtyard is the object of great
craze for the bhaktas. It is believed that this august Jnana Saraswati blesses
the mute with the faculty of speech and cures all diseases, if soulful prayers
are offered. People turn up in large numbers with their kids for Vidyarambha
deeming it a great auspicious beginning.
