VIJAYAWADA - KANAKADURGA AALAYAM

According to legends, there lived in this region, in the dim past two demons-Sambha-Nisumbhas powerful and harmful. They obtained a strange boon of not meeting death at the hands of males. So they were puffed up with pride. They wrssought havoc on sages by obstructing the nityanaimithika pujas and their yagasalas were destroyed. The performers were put to death. There was misery stationed in the asramavatikas, instead of Santidevata moving about with gaiety, spelling light and sweetness at her every step. Unable to stand the atrocities, the sages prayed to goddess Gowri. Pitying them, She created a power full goddess called Kausaki and entrusted her with the task of protecting the Rishi vatikas, She was a paragon of beauty, capable of hypnotising the on-lookers with a single look. The fame of her bewitching beauty, spread far and wide. Chanda - Mundas - the ministers of Sumbha Nisumbhas advised them to marry her.
