Regretting, she prayed to her Patideva mentally. And lo! the pot came off well in seconds. Due to this, she went to asram a little late. Finding the reason with gnananetra, Jamadgni flew into uncontrollable rage and asked his sons to kill her. Four out of the five of his ideal sons refused; for it was matricide out and out. They were cursed. Then he called his last son, Parasurama and bade him to kill. In minutes he accomplished his father's wish. Pleased with his filial duty, he asked him to name his desire. At once he prayed to give life to his mother dead, and retract the curse called down on his brothers. Jamadagni contented infinitely at his exemplary character, gave life to the dead body now in two parts-head at one place and body at other. So two persons emerged, when he sprinkled holy water from his Kamandal. They were named Yellama Devi, and Bhudevi. Yellama is the head part, and Bhudevi the body. Later they were made the gramadevatas and worshipped with great ardour since then. As this place brought to light Parasurama's outstanding inmate traits and highly evolved virtues - Pithrubhakti, Matruprema and Sodaranuraga, it was called Parasuramakshetra. One more that draws the pilgrims is the Sangameswara Alayam built at the meeting place of Tungabhadra with river Krishna. A holy place for bath and Pindapradana.
