This is the last of the Ashta Vinayaka kshetras, and its long legend is enshrined in Ganesh Purana. This also has links with Gritasamada Maharshi responsible for building of the Varada Vinayaka temple at Mahad. It is an aftermath of the curse of his mother Mukunda. It begins with a terrible cough of Maharshi Gritasamada. Miraculously a child came out of his mouth, when he coughed one day. He had a reddish tinge all over his body. Soon after falling from the father's mouth, the boy said that he was his son and would become the ruler of the three worlds when grown up and defeat Devendra too. Gritasamada remembered then of his mother's curse and tried his best to turn him as a great Vinayakopasaka, advising to chant Ganesh mantra and worship Gajanana incessantly. The bay started it in right earnest and continued it for 5000 years. When Ganesh graced his darsan, he asked the boon of lordship over the entire universe and control over all the created beings including celestials. Granting it, he disappeared with the words that only Lord Maheswar would destroy him, when the Three cities made of gold, silver and iron given by him remain affected. Further, he named him Tripura. Soon Tripura established his unlimited and unchallenged sway over all gods including the highest of them. Brahma and Vishnu fled to Himalayas for safety. Then came Narada, who recounted Tripura's infinite supremacy and ended that only Maheswar alone would relieve them from Tripura's torture. He also taught them Sankatanasan Mahamantra that would, please Ganesh and would give darsan and liberation.
