MANGALAGIRI

ANTIQUITY

Among the scriptures embodying the history and glory of this scared place, credit goes to Brahmavaivartha purana that gives an elaborate account of the origin of this divyakshetra and miracles of the Lord. The Sthalapuranas and archives too shed enough light on the construction, and endownments made to the temples, built both atop the hill and down below at its foot.

According to Sthalapurana, this region was ruled by one great king named Pariyatra in the dim past, when this hill did not exist at all; it was but a forest fit for quiet life, like meditation and penance. The king had a son by name Krusva Sringi on whom he lavished great affection. He was born deformed and sick, yet a dutiful one whose mind was to god-wards. The young prince had infinite faith in the Lord and believed implicitly, and rightly too that God alone could cure him of his ailments, and rid him of the deformities too. So he went on a long pilgrimage to dip in holy rivers, and sip the sacred thirtha of every adorable god.
