of the episodes relating to the lives of Yadavas and Pandavas,
particularly that of Sri Krishna, Subhadra, Balarama, Arjuna and
other principal characters took place here in Dwaparayuga. Moreover,
Lakulisa considered to be the avatar of Siva, visited this place
after entering another man's body through parakaya pravesam and
performed penance. He settled down here and taught sastras to a
choice group of students and became a great Siddha. It is said that
he, who prays to the image of Lakulisa here on the Karthika Pournami
is promised of abundant wealth enough for seven births. Realizing
the holiness hovering over here, Agasthya preferred the celebration
of his marriage with Lopamudra here.
Yudhistira, during his yatra performed pujas here, fasting
completely for 12 days with Droupadi. Here one can see five sakaras
- Saraswati river, Somagraha Samudra, Swayambhu Jyotirlinga and Soma
i.e. Lord Siva with Uma, His consort. Many Siddhas adepts in the
Pasupata yoga flourished in the past here.
