Maharshi, as a mark of his boundless devotion adored Ganesh with the
presentation of the unique jewel. Since then, Ganesh is called variously as
Chintamani Vinayaka, Kapila Vinayaka and Sumukha Vinayaka. These episodes took
place near a Kadamba tree and the village that grew up later was named Kadamba
thirtha. The pushkarini and the kshetra became very famous; for, it was
ministering to the needs of victims of different types. Leprosy is cured, if one
bathes in the thirtha and offers worship to this merciful Chintamani Vinayaka.
King Rukmangada was cured of his dreadful leprosy, and Devendra rid of the curse
of Goutama here. Brahma regained stability after his prayers to this Omnipotent
Vinayaka, when once his mind lost its poise. This place grants manifold
blessings to the, adorers.
