RYALI

So build a temple and install a statue which you will get at the place, where the axle of the chariot fall. So start the search this morning itself and you will get a rare image, the like of which has not been installed by any in the past. You will get merit, and the future remembers and honours you as a great benefactor of the theistic world." Deeming the injunction a bolt from blue, he followed the chariot on this errand in all sincerity, with zeal surging faster than his body being borne in his chariot. As it proceeded, the axle fell on its own accord at this spot, where the present temple stands. After clearing the thick foliage, he found this rare find which stupefied him, since it bore the most adorable forms of Sri Mahavishnu - Kesavaswamy and Jaganmohini on fore and rear. Soon the entire state machinery was geared up. And lo! in months, a temple of imposing stature came up. With Agamic injuctions the statue was installed, when pomp and splendour reached the apex to herald to the high heaven that a shrine of supreme spiritual significance came into being at this spot. The King and the people were benefited beyond description. The deity by showering munificence on the worshippers became a much-adored celebrity with rare charms externally, and a sure refuge internally. 'Rali' is the Telugu word for fall, as the axle fell at this place, so this place was fittingly calld Rali, which became Ryali later.
