The glory of this Mokshapuri eulogised by Vedavyasa  as Galapuri is found in many legends and history, as it begins with the churning of Ksheerasagara by devas and danavas to obtaining nectar. It is here Lord Siva swallowed Halahalam that emerged during the churning to saving the worlds from conflagration. It is here the wedding of Mahalakshmi with Mahavishnu was consummated at the intervention of Lord Siva. Many more awe-inspiring episodes took place here making this Punyabhumi soaked in Siva mahima. Kings and Philanthropists endowed lavishly and made this into a centre of pilgrimage of eternal importance. The Wodeayars of Mysore endowed it in several ways, and Muslim rulers followed suit, recognising the divinity hovering over here. History is replete with many episodes of its many faceted splendour.
