antiquity of this kshetra dates back to Tretayuga and it is quite
fascinating too. According to Gangapura legend, Nala, one of the
Shatchakravartis, during his exile came to this region, and when he
was eating the boiled fish, offered by the villagers, a few fell
into the river, ,and at once they turned into live fish. As such
this place was deemed then very holy, and realising its spiritual
potentialities, one devotee by name Veerakambala built a big temple
and dedicated it to Chennakesava, his household deity. Hearing its
glory, Lord Siva descended to visit and adore the archamurti. During
then, it so happened that two extremely ravishing fisher-virgins
called - Ingi and Thangi came into His sight on the bank of the
river. He was irresistably drawn to them and loved passionately too.
So He said to them that He would live on the bank under the new name
of Parusavedeeswara and would change their brass pots into gold, if
they, touched the Sivalinga. He kept up his word and lured many, by
showering several boons on the adorers. Gradually it became a great
Saivakshetra of unprecedented fame. It was a big and well built
temple, but it tasted the wrath of Moghul emperor Aurangazeb and so
was razed to the ground.
