Arrangements were made for the installation of the Moola Vigrah just right at the auspicious moment, when everyone was totally oblivious at the sight of the splendrous beauty of the icon Vijayanarayana amidst the recitation of Vedic hymns and instrumental music, there heard a resonant voice declaring the unworthiness of the statue due to wrong selection of stone. The whole congregation staggering at it, turned their head to the direction of the voice. It was a youth who came forward and emphatically repeated the defect in the icon. When the master sculptor Jankanachari meeting this challenge said that he would cut off his arm, if proved. The young Dankanachari thereupon hit with a hammer on the stomach of that august icon to prove his statement. And lo! a frog jumped out from the cavity made. The youth ascended and the aged was floored. Later it was understood that both were father and son, long separated but now strongly united. When wonder ceased, Vishnu vardhan sought ways to install the befitting archamurthi in the temple. At the suggestion of the agamic pundits, one well sculptured idol found in the Bababuden hills was brought and installation completed The defective one too was installed in another temple equally superb, and it now goes by the name of Kappe Chennigaraya - Chennakesava with a frog inside. The priests points out the cavity if requested by the visiting public.
