ALAMPUR

ORIGIN

Regarding the building of Navabrahma temple group, the Sthalapurana gives a fantastic account. Though seems incredible, it registers the potency of devotion, and establishes the truth that for god men, nothing is impossible; they can build sky scrapers too at volition in seconds. This axiomatic truth is exemplified in the life of a widow and her only son, responsible for building the Navabrahma group of temples.

The story begins in Varanasi and ends in Hemalapura. It says - there was a pious of widow in Varanasi in the dim past. She was devout and just, and was known for he: righteous living and ideal thinking. Not satisfied with her leading a godly life, she wanted to bequeath it to posterity through her progeny. So in all sincerity and with utmost piety, she prayed to Lord Viswanath, her heart's choicest God to bless her with a son. Though she was extremely joyous over the fulfilment of desire, soon she found the society's causeless malice - when the rancorous missiles and wanton hatred dumped upon her, she found life too heavy to bear. She regretted. She bore, but when her noble son too was forced to bite the bitter, venomous fruits, the society gave to him, her motherly heart fluttered. Abused and excommunicated by one and all, he narrated the dishonour meted out to him. And asked for a solution. Pointing to the Lord Viswanath, she said that that greatest alone could confer beatitude, and lift him from the bog of shame dragging him to the bottom minute after minute.
