The other most adorable Devathas that attract the visitors are Yellamma and Bhudevi, and they are much-sought after deities. Locals worship them with unusual fervour. They have an august background, and are associated with the Sage Jamadagni and Parasuram, the sixth incarnation of Lord Maha Vishnu, and this gave the kshetra the hallowed name of Parasuramakshetra. It runs - Jamadagni, one of the Saptharishis was renowned for his tapassakti and strict adherence to moral code. Renuka was his ideal wife, and a byword for matrimonial fidelity -Pativratya. She was bringing water with an earthen pot made of sand on the bank of a river near by after taking bath in it. Everyday a new pot. And this was the regular practice in the asram. One day, due to her misfortune, she chanced to see Chitraratha-a king was taking bath with his wife in the same river, a little distance off her usual bathing place. As the jalakrida was a little bit fascinating, she looked it for a little while longer. And when she tried to making pot as usual with the sand, she could not, due to witnessing of the amorous sports of Chitraratha. Chastity was tainted - seeing intently such a sight, however distracting it may be, amounts to loss of fidelity; so she could not make the pot easily as she was doing.
