ANTARVEDI

According to scriptures, once a wicked demon by name Raktavilochan tortured the innocent sadhus mercilessly ruling from this place. Loin Mahavishnu killed him at the earnest appeal of Vasishta. And later Vasishta built his asram here and brought the water of Godavari through a rivulet which is called after him Vasishtapaya. It is also the place where Hiranyakasipu's corpse fell, when Lord Narasimha threw him into the air-antarveedhi, which word in course of time became Antarvedi. Lord Narasimha meditated here, drawn by its sequestered sublimity sitting in an ant- hill, till the beginning of Kaliyuga when a cowherd by name Kesvadas dug out that ant-hill, when one of his cows was standing on it and milking to the Lord. Finding an icon, he built a befitting temple and installed it for regular worship.
