ALAMPUR

It so happened that his roaming brought him to this country and he begged a Bhill -a forest-dweller for food. Asking him to wait there, he went out to hunt down some animal for the king. When he aimed at a deer, it requested him to permit it to go its babes for milking and would certainly return to become his prey after that. It added to believe its words, and would suffer like King Vilasat for the sin committed, if it did not turn up. The hunter sparing, returned to the king and reported. Wonder-struck, the king went to see the strange deer and test its veracity along with the till. The deer kept up its word came to the hunter as promised, but turned its face on seeing the king in the company of the hunter, stating that it would never see such sinner. The king realising the power of its devotion prayed to show him the way for getting rid of his sin. It directed him to go to Brahmakshetra and do tapas for getting rid of sins, and later to reconstruct the destroyed temples. It also predicted that he would be relieved, when the king's image on the stone disappear miraculously. He implemented it, and as prophesied he became once again the ruler of the same kingdom with better status, and also nearer to God for the nobler ways he followed. This story is depicted on stone in the temple, and that superb sculpture publishes incidentally the glory of the kshetra and the righteous life led by man and beast living in this area. Divinity seems exuding here from every inch of the soil, due to presence of all the highest gods. For kshethram, thirtham and daivam, particularly the presence of Brahma, there is no other pilgrim centre that comes nearer to this. It is peerless.
