the devotees who received the Lord's blessings are legion and belong
to the four yugas, and what is more the cycles of yugas went by
infinite times. This Mokshapuri was variously called in each yuga,
like Brahmapura in the Kritayuga, Vishnupura in the Tretayuga
Naradapura in the Dwapara and Varaguna Pura in the Kaliyuga. Another
mysterious feature about the archamurthi that deserves mention is
the linga too has been appearing in different hues in different
times, like the golden, in the Kritayuga, silvery in the Tretayuga,
matalic in the Dwaparayuga and granite in Kaliyuga.
with such countless miracles and legends the presiding deity-Sri
Kalahastiswara is answering every genuine call of true devotees day
in and day out, and so endeared himself as the surest refuge to the
saranagatas of all times and climes from devas to kitakas.
