ANTIQUITY:

Strange to note, that such a popular deity with an unprecedented fantastic background originally belongs to Ceylon and it chose an auspicious occasion to cross the waters and land at Dhanushkoti, where millions of sacred rivers merge in the Ratnakara the Bay of Bengal. According to legend when Sri Rams the seventh incarnation of Sri Mahavishnu invested a valorous prince of Simha dynasty with the office of keeping guard over the holy Ramalingeswara along with 14000 Hara lingas, the redoubtable goddess Ma Paudi variously known as Mandaleswari, Hingulakhi etc , one of the chief manifestations of Mother Parvathi, appeared before that valor ions prince in a dream and volunteered her service of sustaining him in his holy office. The Simha price who had seen her Ashtadath image earlier in the Ramaeswaram temple thanked her soulfully for the magnanimous gesture extended Unsolicited at it. She kept her word.
