Along with the installation of the tall white linga by Devendra under the guidance of Brihaspati, the images of Parivara devathas, Ambika were installed by other dignitaries, and many minishrines were built for them. Bala Chamunidika, Lord Siva's consort is worshipped here, and she is according to Puranas, the fourth of the eighteen pithas of Sakti. Due to the presence of these highest divinities in this place, it became a mokshapuri, and in course of time became as great as Varanasi. So the word went round that, he who stays for three days and worships. Lord Amareswar after bath in Krishna, with genuine faith, he will reach Sivaloka and any one who dies here gets merged in the Lord-Sayujya mukti. Its previous name was Dhanyakatakam. It became as popular as that of Kasi, and was called Dhakshina Kasi. And it was also called Crounchapuram too, owing to the existence of Crounch hill, the seat of Amareswaraswami.
