SRISAILAM

VINAYAKA'S VICTORY

According to another legend, once there developed on odd, yet hot dispute between Shanmuga and Vinayaka over their marriage who should be married first? Started as a pastime prattle, it developed into an unwieldy uproarious war between the two that needed adjudication by their parents-Uma and Maheswar. Hearing to the two sides, Lord Maheswar said, "He who makes a Pradakshan of the world first will be the winner, and he will be eligible to marry first". At once Shanmuga seated on his mount Mayura started for Bhupradakshana, whereas Vinayaka went round once his parents and said that he was the winner, and quoted relevant evidence from the scriptures that parents are the living gods and going round them tantamounts going round the world. His wisdom pleased them most and decided him as the victor, but Shanmuga returning after sometime found his elder made fit for the wedding.

Blaming the verdict as erroneous, and the parents partial, he left Kailas and came to this hill. To appease and convince him of the right decision, Siva and Parvathi came to this hill. When all went well, the devotees requested Lord Siva to dwell here for ever. He nodded and is staying since then. Yet, there is another, version recorded in a slightly different way that attributes the quarrel over ghanaphal given by Narada and the hill is Palani.
